Project Description

Mary is one of the two bears, imprisoned in cages at the “Lutsch 2000” Gas Station in Sibiu County. Some people used to stop here only to see the bears and accepted to pay some money in order to have a nice photo of a live bear. It was practically a mini zoo owned by the owner of the gas station. Here Mary survived for 2 years. A two years old bear named Vasilică, an older resident of this zoo, kept her company until the spring of 2007, when she was released to the Sanctuary.
Here she found new friends, plenty of food and the forest which offers all the bears a refuge, is now her forever-home.
