Project Description

This bear is not available for adoption!


Martinică spent the first 20 years of his life in a cage, inside the yard of the Cotmeana Monastery (Argeș County). He was found in the forest when he was 1 year old by the monastery’s administrator. Initially the Sanctuary team has tried to persuade the administrator to give the bear up voluntarily but as he refused to do so, Martinică was finally confiscated with the support of the authorities. He arrived to the Sanctuary in October 2007 and since then he’s enjoying the grass, the oaks, each rain drop and snow flake.
