As cute as they may seem to some people visiting the Bear Sanctuary Domazhyr, brown bears are actually wild animals. But unfortunately, these majestic creatures often get mistreated and used either in circuses, as an attraction for restaurants, or to train hunting dogs. The Four Paws NGO has therefore started the Lviv Bear Sanctuary, to which rescued brown bears are brought. Here the bears can live a life that is as close as possible to their life in the wild and are being introduced to the lifestyle that their wild conspecifics can enjoy.
