This bear has been waiting for rescue for 30 yearsBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/this-bear-has-been-waiting-for-rescue-for-30-years
We are all used to the fact that bears are dangerous ferocious animals. To encounter such a predator in the wild means to come face to face with death (everyone mentally imagined the Oscar—winning "Survivor" and nodded).
Fifi is a Syrian brown bear. There is absolutely no anger in the look of this poor animal. But there is pain, incredible fatigue and a completely sincere misunderstanding of why she had such a cruel fate.
Fifi spent the first 10 years of her life in a cramped cage at a roadside zoo in Pennsylvania. When the zoo was closed, the owners of the animals spat on the bear and three of her relatives, leaving the predators languishing in cramped cages not adapted for keeping bears. Fifi has lived in this prison for 20 years.
Although its existence can hardly be called life. The animal was not walked, was poorly fed, and had no access to water. The most terrible thing is that the bear was not allowed to hibernate, which means that her body was in the last stage of exhaustion.
Last summer, Fifi's owner decided to get rid of the bears. PETA workers came to pick up the animals, who were shocked by the condition of the bear: thin, the skin hangs down, sometimes hugging the skeleton, the eyes are sunken. Later, Fifi was diagnosed with arthritis of the hind legs. She and the other bears periodically rocked back and forth-a movement animals use to cope with stress.
In the shortest possible time, the bears were transported to a wild animal park in Colorado, provided with proper care and proper nutrition. For the first time their paws touched the grass, the water in the pool, the first time they tasted fruit.
Freedom and careful medical supervision have transformed Fifi in an amazing way. The bear gained weight and got a thick long coffee-colored fur. Thanks to the PETA employees, Fifi will be fine now.
