Russia: Abandoned bear cubs find new home in Tver wildlife centre

Russian Federation, Bubonitsy
May 22, 2019 at 11:56 GMT +00:00 · Published

Two brown bear cubs abandoned by their mother found a new home in the Orphan Bear Rescue Centre in the village of Bubonitsy in the Tver region, as seen from footage released on Wednesday.

The animal centre, which already shelters 14 other bear cubs, said that the newcomers were found abandoned in the Smolensk region in March. When it became clear that their mother would not return to them, the people who found the bears informed the centre about the cubs.

In addition to taking care of the bears and preparing them for adult life, the rescue centre also pays special attention to the diet of the animals. The cubs are usually fed with buckwheat, oatmeal, eggs, as well as vitamins, calcium, and other nutrients.

The orphan animal centre is located near the village of Bubonitsy, and is the only one of its kind in Russia. The employees of the centre nurse the cubs so that they can eventually be returned to the wild.

At the moment, the wildlife centre is home to 16 brown bear cubs. In 29 years of operation, the centre has saved more than 200 young animals.
