This is Buddha, 10 years caged for bile production, she is taking her first steps out from her new 'den' into the enclosures at Animals Asia sanctuary, which I think is in China. Encouraging news is that there is a Chinese animal welfare organisation also highlighting this terrible cruelty. The person who founded this charity 20 years ago Jill Robinson won an award last night the first 'Animal Honours' in this country for services rendered. Buddha is very timorous in taking those first steps, you can almost feel the bewilderment and joy perhaps to find another world.
