A TV programme on the mistreatment of bears drove Mary Hutton to get off her couch and make a difference, which eventually led to the establishment of Free the Bears Fund, an organisation that has rescued over 800 bears from abuse and slaughter. Hutton tells travel 3Sixty° how she went from suburban grandmother to saviour of bears.
