Every year, roughly 2,000 Russian bear cubs are placed into captivity by cruel humans who orphan them. They are forced into lives of pain as entertainment in circuses or bound to cages as exotic pets. That is, if they manage to survive their first year.
However, this cutie was saved from that fate…but not before hunters killed his mom. Weighing only a little over four pounds when they found him, he’s in safe hands now.
He’ll have a second chance at a happy life once he’s fully rehabilitated, but sadly so many others just like him won’t be so lucky.
