help the saddest bears in Ukraine!

Thanks to the work of FOUR PAWS, the use of bears for training hunting dogs has been banned in Ukraine since 2015. Nevertheless, bears are still abused: illegally on hunting stations or legally by being kept as attractions next to restaurants and hotels and in recreational parks.
