Bear Takes a Time Out on Tire Swing at New York Sanctuary

A rescue bear took a well-deserved time out at a New York sanctuary, planting herself firmly on a tire swing, as she relaxed and stretched out her legs.

Footage by the Orphaned Wildlife Center, which is located in Otisville, shows the bear, named Jenny, chilling out on the swing and partaking in some “morning stretching”.

Founded by Jim Kowalczik, Susan Kowalczik, and Kerry Clair in 2015, the Orphaned Wildlife Center, in Otisville, New York, nurtures its animal residents, in the hope they can be returned to the wild.

The center often shares videos and updates about the animals in its care to its YouTube channel and Facebook page. Credit: Kerry Clair via Storyful
