The bear bile industry—which uses cruel, painful procedures to extract digestive fluids from captive bears in the name of traditional medicine—is sadly still thriving in the 21st Century. Luckily for Tuffy, the bear in this video, he was rescued from one such bile farm where he spent years condemned to a life of torture inside a tiny cage. Animals Asia captured the blissful frolic Tuffy made in his sanctuary pool on one of the first days he ventured outside after being rescued. Seeing Tuffy splash around like a giggly baby in a bathtub is the uplifting sight you never knew you needed.
