Sofia. The Ministry of Environment and Water gave a permit for sending the three bear cubs, found abandoned by their mother near the Dospat dam, to Greece for re-adaptation at the Arcturos centre, the ministry said. They were found on April 21 and sent to the bear park near Belitsa after a rescue operation. The mother has not been found since. The cubs, aged about 3 months, will be transported to Greece by Four Paws. After a re-adaptation at the Arcturos centre, they would be returned to natural environment. For a successful re-adaptation, it is crucial that it begins the soonest possible. Given the rapid and adequate action by the authorities, the experts hope it will be successful.

No bear images captured on camera traps near Barutin

No bear images captured on camera traps near Barutin

25 April 2018 | 16:12 | FOCUS News Agency
Smolyan. The camera traps placed near the site where the bear cubs were found Saturday have not captured any images of a bear or any evidence that their mother is in the vicinity. This was established by experts from the Regional Inspectorate of Environment and Water in Smolyan carrying out search operations. The baby bears were found in the village of Barutin, and were placed in the Dancing Bears Rehabilitation Park near Belitsa.
Because of the lack of conclusive evidence, the return of the cubs to the wild is a high risk. There is a real danger that their mother would not recognise them because they were touched by people, or they could be first found by another animal – bear or wolf.
According to the park staff, the baby bears are now eating well and have already overcome the stress of having too many people around them. To ensure their smooth reintroduction to their natural habitat, the cubs will be sent to a wildlife refuge centre in Greece.
