Bear demonstrates true happiness when climbing a tree

If your idea of relaxing includes finding the most comfortable spot in the shade and chilling out, you may find that this bear would be a great companion. Wang Cai, the bear formally known as Rudolph, and his twin sister Holly currently live in the Animals Asia China sanctuary.
The twin bears were raised by a local village after they were found abandoned. Villagers turned the bears over to the sanctuary when they became too large to care for. He and his sister have been at the sanctuary for four years, according to The Dodo.

Wang Cai enjoys climbing the trees, finding a cozy branch and stretching out for a nap. As you can tell in the photos from Animals Asia's Flickr account, the bear has no trouble getting comfortable!
Whether he's plopped against the tree or sprawled out on a branch, his balance is impeccable. Doesn't he seem at ease chilling on such a thin branch?
Between naps, Wang Cai enjoys sitting in the tops of the trees and climbing to high branches to grab a snack.
"Wang Cai and his sister are climbers- and they give us a glimpse of the life that all bears should be able to have, when they're happy [and] healthy," Vet Team Director Nic Field told The Dodo.
If Wang Cai and his sister hadn't been taken in by the sanctuary, they could have ended up in a zoo or, more likely, as victims of bile farming. Bile farming is the practice of keeping bears in captivity to extract digestive fluid from their liver and gallbladder for use in traditional Chinese medicine. ​
