This post is also available in: Tiếng Việt

Hi folks

Recently, I got to shoot for World Animal Protection (Shout out to Quinn Mattingly for giving me this opportunity) The shoot was to document the procedure of microchipping. The reason for microchipping (as stated by WAP) is as follow:

Microchipping is a way of tracking and monitoring bears. It means bear owners must comply with laws that control bear bile production.

The farm I got to shoot was one (in many) in Bình Dương, this one has 17 bears.

I’m no expert in this field of work. As a photographer. I have the responsibility to connect what I see to you guys – my blog reader(s).

Sign reads: Beware of wild animals. Safety working.

The bear fits perfectly in the cage.
