The practice of using animals as attractions in circuses is increasingly restricted, since the conditions in which they live inside the circuses are truly cruel and the training is very hard and violent, which ends in very miserable lives for the poor animals. .
There are organizations dedicated to the rescue of circus animals, which help them rejoin their habitat if it is still possible and if not, they take them to sanctuaries dedicated to their conservation and well-being. A little over a year ago, a bear named Toshka had the good fortune to be rescued.
people scared him
After spending 25 years in a circus in the Ukraine, Toshka was rescued and taken to a nature reserve. The decades of abuse had a noticeable effect on him and it took a while for him to adjust to his new life.
When she arrived, Toshka was very afraid of people; he didn’t come out of the bushes for two weeks. But the care and attention he received melted his heart and now his favorite pastime is taking baths in the sun. He sits and can stay like that for hours.
A new life
Today, Toshka is a happy bear, completely used to his new life, and in the video below – which went viral at the time – you can see him enjoying a bath.
There is no doubt that animals do not belong in tiny cages nor should they be in conditions of human cruelty and violence, for see how happy Toshka looks in the sun!
