Bucharest, April 27 /Agerpres/ - The first three bear cubs were born in early March at the Libearty Bear Sanctuary in Zarnesti, which was set up 12 years ago; the trio are in good health and two were remotely adopted by a family from England.
"The young were born to 15-year old mother Pamela and 3-year old father Pluto, the only male at the sanctuary that is not neutered. Two of the cubs, Mark and Di, have been remotely adopted by a family from England and we are waiting for the third to also be successfully adopted. The cubs are in perfect health but still quarantined. The fact that the first litter was born here is wonderful, because most of the bears in the reserve are aged over 30. Most probably, they will be on view for tourists visiting the Libearty Sanctuary as of this summer," Paula Ciotlos, vice-president of the 'Million of Friends' Animal Protection Association Brasov, told AGERPRES.
The addition of the triplets takes the number of bears sheltered at Zarnesti to 90, of which 37 females and 50 males. Monitoring by reserve experts showed another two female bears might be having cubs in the next three months.
A one-of-a-kind in Romania, the Zarnesti brown bear reserve, spanning 70 hectares of land that was made available by the Zarnesti Mayorality, is the largest of this type in Eastern Europe. The bears here are rescued from all corners of the country, zoos or improper shelters owned by private persons.
Masha and Grisha were also flown here in early 2016 from a private zoo in Armenia, from where they were saved by the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, that paid for the transport.
The visitors of the Zarnesti brown bear reserve can take a 45-minute guided tour on a mini-train and can watch the animals' feeding ritual and the living habits of the bears. The train also rolls up to a dedicated photo shoot platform for a panoramic view of the surroundings.
