The first inhabitant at the Domazhyr BEAR SANCTUARY

Potap was the first bear to move to our BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr. He is a ten-year-old brown bear who was born in a zoo in Ukraine. He spent his first year in a circus. Later, he eked out a miserable existence on bare concrete in a tiny cage of eight square metres. The ceiling was so low that he could hardly stand upright. The cage was positioned near a restaurant in order to 'attract' visitors.

Potap is a very positive and friendly bear. He is forgiving. He likes to play, swim and solve various tasks.

This 300-kilogramme handsome bear likes to eat well. He especially enjoys fish.

In his new home, he can now rest in an environment suited to his species.
