Bear Laska

Bear Laska

The female brown bear came to our sanctuary in February 2019

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.

Laska in her new home

In her new home, she can now rest in a species-appropriate environment. She is doing great at the sanctuary, and has a very good appetite.  She is friendly with neighbouring bears Anya and Frankie.

Laska loves to be exploring her forest enclosure and spends a lot of time digging! She is an active and lovely bear, and is not aggressive at all.
