Graeme the bear: a story of courage
Graeme is a 23-year-old bear, who loves foraging and relaxing in the forest. These sweet freedoms are still new for this rescued Romanian bear. Caught as a cub, Graeme was illegally kept in a small cage entertaining a mining company’s clients. For years Graeme fought over the meagre scraps he and other bears were given. During one terrible fight, Graeme lost his right eye. Later on, Graeme was surrendered to a zoo in Baia Mare, Romania where he spent several years behind bars walking in stress circles in his tiny cage. Thankfully our partners Asociatia Milioane de Prieteni (AMP) rescued Graeme in 2013 and brought him to the Romanian bear sanctuary located near the town of Zarnesti. Today, he’s living his life in peace and safety, along with 97 other bears.
