It is known that mushroom pickers accidentally stumbled upon a cage with a predator when they were near the village of Novoivanovka. Subsequently, representatives of the Republican Ministry of Natural Resources went to the site to assess the situation. The volunteers concluded that the bear was under stress and severely emaciated. There is information that the animal has been living in such conditions for about 10 years. His relative was also in the cage, but he recently died due to hunger.
One of the local residents said that the owner of the predator claims that there is no means to feed the “pet”. They fed the latter with what people brought. She also said that the police did not want to take the animal, since the zoos and nurseries are overcrowded.
