Bosnian Bear is rescued

Just when you think everything sucks we see something that renews our faith in humanity. This is the story of Miljen, a bear that was captured by hunters back in 2000 and bought by a mobster to show off his machismo 🙄

Miljen’s mommy had been killed by the hunters and the poor cub was left to the “protection” of the mobster. Well, the macho mobster was busted in 2005 and poor Miljen was left abandoned. Neighbors took pity on him and were keeping him alive by feeding him bread. Miljen lost a lot of weight and was about to die when he was discovered by a Serbian film-maker who was filming in the area. Soon, animal protection groups began a campaign to rescue Miljen and take him to a sanctuary in Normandy.

After all this time, the bear can finally be accepted into the EU. People had to fatten him up and make him healthy in order for him to be accepted but he can finally be free. This Tuesday he is traveling in a well equipped, vet monitored van and he will arrive at his sanctuary where he is to be joined by two female bears!!! OMG :mrgreen:

Miljen will arrive later this week and the poor baby can finally meet other bears like him after being alone in a cage for 8 years. Yay for Miljen!! :mrgreen:

    I rescued a dog who had lived without other dogs for twelve and a half years. His joy when he is among his own kind is hard to watch and harder to describe.

    I am very happy for this poor bear, and I wish I could see how he looks the day he gets to go among the other bears.

      Aww that’s a sweet story. I was looking everywhere for updates on the Bosnian bear but I couldn’t find any. I’m sure he’s enjoying his new life, anything is better than how he used to live.
