Project Description

Cocolino was bought with a sale and purchase agreement from a circus in Oradea by a man who lived in Fagaras. He took the bear to his Hotel & Restaurant named Ciucaş (in a village near Fagaras named Mandra) and locked him up in a metal cage somewhere outside, close enough to the restaurant so that visitors could see him.

He spent 7 long years there until a tourist who found accommodation at the hotel, informed Libearty about the bad conditions the bear was living in and in May 2008, with the support of the National Environmental Guard, Cocolino joined the other free bears from the “Libearty” Sancuary.
