By Aaliya Mir

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 Tral area was notorious for the number of bear attacks and also the number of bears that had been killed.
