Kosovo: Restaurant bears rescued from cage
Thursday 23 May 2013
Two brown bears have been released into a special sanctuary near Kosovo’s capital, Pristina, after being rescued from a 20sq m cage where they had been held almost all their lives to amuse visitors at a restaurant.
Ari and Arina, both 10 years old, were taken to their new home by the international animal charity group Four Paws, which helped sedate and transport them.
Police said they held back the restaurant’s angry owners as the bears were taken away.
