Happy bears June 16, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Ecology.

Bulgaria’s last three dancing bears are being sent to a mountain sanctuary after activists bought their freedom yesterday in an effort to stamp out the centuries-old tradition which has survived in the Balkans despite being outlawed.

The trio will join another 20 brown bears in their new home on Mount Rila, partly funded by a foundation run by former French actress Brigitte Bardot.
