After being rescued from the concrete pits and inhumane conditions at a North Carolina bear park, a sleuth of bears is happily adjusting to new life at an animal sanctuary in Boyd, Texas.

The International Exotic Animal Sanctuary (IEAS) announced last week that the 11 bears that had been rescued from Chief Saunooke Bear Park earlier this year had not only moved into the sanctuary, but had already kick-started their road to recovery.

“The IAES will provide these bears with the best quality of life possible in large, naturalistic habitats. It’s a dramatic contrast from the life they knew before,” said Richard Gilbreth, executive director of the sanctuary, according to a media release.
