February 7, 2014: Raja and Zara are three-year-old Moon Bears in Pahalgam. Rescued a little less than three years ago, these cubs would not have made it if Wildlife SOS had not intervened. The two siblings were found in the trunk of a hollow Chinar tree in the Tral area of the Shopian Division of Kashmir. The Tral area was notorious for the number of bear attacks and also the number of bears that had been killed. In 2006, the nation was stunned by a video that played on almost all channels showing a bear being burnt alive by the villagers of this area although it had offered no violence and was merely foraging in their orchards.
