(Scroll down for video) A group of black bears that were released into the wild after being show animals, were seen chasing after a food delivery truck in order to get some treats, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

The International Animal Rescue (IAR) organization of Bannerghatta, India, said that the video was recorded by veterinarian Dr. Arun A. Sha of Wildlife SOS.

The video shows nine black bears chasing a food delivery truck on a road. The animals were recently rescued from being forced to perform as dancing bears.

Before the animals were rescued, they were forced to perform for tourists. Their trainers tied rope through the nostrils of the bears and pulled them, forcing them to dance.

Tourists paid money to take pictures with the dancing bears.

Some bears have lost their teeth as a result of the abuse.

“We can’t stop watching this amazing clip, which shows the rescued bears chasing after the food delivery truck. It is an amazing sight to see these bears running excited and free towards some yummy treats. Long gone are their days spent at the end of a rope being forced to perform,” the International Animal Rescue said on Facebook.
