Bear With Sad Eyes Was Trapped In A Cage For 30 Years… But Look At Her Now.

When the people at PETA and The Wild Animal Sanctuary met Fifi, she was in terrible shape. Over 30 years ago, Fifi the bear arrived at a Pennsylvania roadside zoo, forced with the other bears to perform tricks for travelers. Thankfully, the zoo closed its doors about ten years later -- but for the remaining 20 years, Fifi was stuck in a tiny, rusted cage. She was neglected, she was unhealthy, and like so many other neglected animals, she needed help.

Luckily, that's just when help arrived. The video below documents what happened after five months of Fifi's time at the animal sanctuary, and her transformation just might bring a tear to your eye. Though the first 30 years of her life were a struggle, Fifi is clearly determined to make her remaining time the best that it can be.
