It wasn’t so long ago that people thought two baby bears might not survive all that they’d been through — but now they’re surprising everyone with how resilient they are.

In January, Mi and Tam were snatched from the hands of wildlife smugglers, thanks to the diligence of the Vietnamese authorities.

They were extremely tiny — each Asiatic black bear cub weighed just under 2 pounds! — and very young. They never should have been separated from their mom.

“There is no trace of the mother and the origin of the two cubs has not yet been determined,” Four Paws wrote. “However, there is a high possibility that the bears were imported from Laos or came directly from bear farms in Vietnam.”

Rushed to Bear Sanctuary Ninh Binh, run by Four Paws International, the cubs received urgent care. And no one was sure if they’d hang on to their little lives.
