The Million of Friends Association has struggled for Anca for almost 10 years. Her rescue seemed to be a hardly accomplished dream, because of the stubbornness of those who owned her! She lived in the Piatra Neamţ Zoo for more than 25 years. She spent her time in a small, miserable cage, and she was allowed to go out only once in a while on a grassy space, that was on a very steep slope anyway.
Most likely, Anca was born in captivity, at a circus. It seems that at some point, together with her sister Ina (living at the Libearty Sanctuary since 2014) she attacked her trainer. After that they were sold to the Piatra Neamt Zoo.
