Noted., This is great news, but the one picture states they will have a "circus career" I hope this is not true.

A future in a Russian circus for those beautiful bears ? For their sake, I sincerely hope not.

There is no future in a circus for animals only a life of misery, which i pray these bear cubs will not be sent to. Thanks Yrna.

After hearing about Buck and Knut, this is very inspiring thanks!! Like the 'saying' goes about there being a time and place for everything, for Knut it was 'a time to die', for this baby it's a time to live!!! Hope the mother takes proper care despite her age!!
