Laska lived for years in unacceptable conditions in the run-down Pokrovsk Zoo near the town of Donetsk. Previously she was kept as a baiting bear – and spent a lifetime being abused to train hunting dogs.
Due to her past experiences, Laska doesn’t trust humans, however, with the qualified care, proper nutrition, and the species-appropriate environment that she has been given at BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr, we are hopeful that Laska will learn to trust humans again.
