Mykhailo is a 13-year-old brown bear, who has lived in the sanctuary since 29th of October 2020. After falling from a tree and severely injured hind paw and other parts of the body, bear was voluntarily handed over by the owner to the sanctuary in order to provide professional veterinary care and professional supervision for his speedy recovery. The bear will go through long rehabilitation period and will be housed in a closer to the nature environment.
While still a bear cub and weaned from his mother at a young age, he got to the recreation center. Bear lived in a small cage near car parking and the constant presence of visitors of this complex.
For Mykhailo was prescribed a special course of treatment and we have a positive result: the wounds have healed, and the bear is already on the injured paw. After undergoing treatment, in January this year, he went to his first winter hibernation.
His full rehabilitation can take a long time.
