Delighted to pass on great news on Mascha, we have heard that Vier Pfoten are rescuing her. She will be moved to Zhytomyr bear sanctuary in Ukraine, where she will live in a natural setting and receive all the care she needs to recover from her ordeal.

So happy for her, I hope they are taking her real soon so there will be no more torture. Now will this rotten place seek out another bear? I hope we will be able to find out. Thanks for the terrific news Desanka!

Such joy for Mascha. Such pain for all of the other bears foxes raccoons rabbits boars and other creatures brutalized at these camps. Where is the proof she is safe? How did Four Paws manage to guarantee her freedom? I need evidence.

I am glad Mascha has been rescued, but I still have tears for all the abuse she has had to endure for the past 5 years!!
Mascha, I hope you enjoy your freedom at the Zhytomyr bear sanctuary! You so deserve it.
