Project Description

Six square meters is for a bear, what about one square meter is for a man. You can barely move, before hitting the bars with your nose. Imagine how Betty must have felt like, a 25 years old bear from the Râmnicu Vâlcea Zoo, locked in a 6 square meters large technical room.

A place where usually tools like some shovels, a hoe and a wheelbarrow are being kept. Nobody knows the exact history of the bear. What we know for sure, is that she lived a lifetime in unimaginable conditions. Betty arrived to the sanctuary in the middle of July 2013. From the 6 square meters, Betty reached tens of acres … of freedom! Read her story!
