FOUR PAWS rescues presumably former baiting bear in Ukraine

Tyson originates from the wild, where he was taken after his mother has been killed by poachers. Ever since then, the brown bear vegetated in a way too tiny cage on a Ukrainian hunting farm. We assume that he was not only kept in inapropriate circumstances but also tortured as a baiting bear - although bear baiting is already prohibited and therefore illegal in Ukraine. Fortunately, Tyson's suffering has ended today. We have freed him from his cage and are now on our way to our newly constructed BEAR SANCTUARY Domazyhr, where Tyson will finally start into a species-appropriate life.
