19-year-old brown bear rescued from a hunting station


Tyson is a 18-year-old brown bear who arrived at the BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr in October 2017. Before that, Tyson led a miserable existence on a hunting station in southwest Ukraine. He had been brutally snatched away from his mother as a bear cub and brought to the lodge. Typically, such stations are used to train hunting dogs to attack bears.  

At the BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr, Tyson is learning to trust humans. He is self-confident, well-balanced and a bit shy. Most of all he enjoys playing with his toys and swimming.

He likes vegetarian food best: nuts, pears, apples and salads.

Please support Tyson

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