Baby Bear Kidnapped!
This horrible footage documents the forceful removal of a baby bear from her mother at the Lutsk Zoo, Ukraine, and gives an understanding of the strong bond between the two. The impact for the baby bear can be imagined by some of the scenes documented. FOUR PAWS calls for the urgent confiscation of both bears and for the attempt to reunite them. FOUR PAWS will act and support the Ukraine authorities to make such confiscation logistically possible and supervise the proper care-taking at any stage with international experts. FOUR PAWS strongly hopes that the Ukraine authorities take action, which they have done in previous weeks, when FOUR PAWS already supervised the confiscation and hand over of four other bears that have been transferred to the bear rescue centre in Synevyr, Ukraine. The footage documents the continued trade in young bears and their outrageous exploitation which also undermines any efforts by the Ukraine authorities to manage the problem. This trade has to stop.
