Paws for Thought: Rescue Bear Relaxes in Tire Swing at New York Sanctuary

A rescued Syrian brown bear was the picture of relaxation as it lay back in a huge tire swing at a New York wildlife sanctuary.

Footage shared by the Orphaned Wildlife Center shows one of its resident bears, Amy, looking lost in thought as she chills out on the swing.

The Orphaned Wildlife Center, located in Otisville, New York, nurtures orphaned animals, 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
