OSBORNE PARK, Australia (February 24, 2015) – Blue the bear came to the folks at Free the Bears several months ago. At that time Blue was unable to walk. Veterinarians with the organization surmised that Blue was suffering from major spinal problems due to serious physical trauma suffered at a young age.

But Blue had the will and determination to walk, and after several months of 24-hour care, medicine and exercise, Blue was able to build his strength and walk on his feet.

Free the Bears shared a video of Blue walking on his feet, climbing and playing.
