IFAW Russia: Orphan Bear Cubs Prepare for Winter - Soooo Cute
These photos of two orphaned Russian bear cubs were recently taken at the International Fund for Animal Welfare's Bear Rehabilitation Center. The notes below come from our staffer Lena Averianova.
The autumn comes to an end. Ostakh and Gena have grown, they are stronger, and we hope they have already forgotten how their story began.
Beautiful, free animals, just look at photos.
They are now walking in a open-air wooden enclosure, they show the skills and ability to find food and they skillfully climb up trees. Employees at the center sometimes feed the bears apples, for them this is a big delicacy.
These young bears already have the necessary weight and warm fur coats so they are ready to 'lie down' for the winter in a den prepared by IFAW staff.
Everything is well with Ostakh and Gena at the IFAW BRC and now we can wish them: “Kind winter dreams!"
