When Vesko met Rada – two happy bears!

Our 10-year-old Vesko is not lonely anymore.

We are astonished by bear Vesko’s fast progress. If you remember, we rescued the bear late last year and his progress and change have been incredible! Most of all, he has already successfully been socialised with another bear, Rada.

After monitoring of the two bears closely during the last weeks, the team of Dancing Bears Park Belitsa (in Blagoevgrad, Bulgarien), which is run together with Fondation Brigitte Bardot, decided to introduce the two bears together.

Both bears were living next to each other but were separated by a fence for about one week, that way they could be near each other and feel the presence of one another without interacting directly.

As Vesko never had the chance to live with another bear in his previous life, it was quite challenging for the team to predict how successful the process will be. However, since the very first moments of the bears being together, everything went smoothly and the pictures taken during that time show that best.

Nowadays, we see them very often cuddling together in the cave, as it is cooler during the hot days and they often have their playtime in the evenings. These bears are two happy souls!

  1. Dear Mervi
    What a heartwarming story. Four Paws can be proud of this one.
    The bears clearly enjoy being together. They look in really good shape.

  2. Dear Mervi,

    Thank you for publishing this nice story and photos. The bears look happy and healthy and it is good that they have each other as a play mate.

    Bear hugs,

  3. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for publishing this mood-lifting article about these two wonderful brownies!
    Heartwarming by all means!
    “Four Paws” can be proud of their work for good reason and it is very touching to learn about these stories with happy endings for bears who have been tortured in the past.
    The sweet photos of this happy couple made my day!

    Hugs

  5. It’s always good to get to know about ‘HAPPY SOULS’.

    Two ‘lovely brownies in love’.
    They give hope and put smiles into our faces. Don’t they!?

    Wonderful!

    Thank you for sharing with us in KWM, dear Mervi.

  6. Liebe Mervi,
    Vier Pfoten das ist ein super gute Einrichtung die man unbedingt unterstützen sollte!
    Sie haben so vielen Bären geholfen und auch gut untergebracht.
    Leider gibt es dieses Jahr keine Bilder und Bericht vom Gnadenhof für Bären, muß wegen Corona ausfallen.
    Vesko und Rada haben nun ein bäriges Leben vor sich und ich wünsche den beiden nur das Beste.
    Vielen Dank, Bären sind für uns eine Herzenssachen und jeder gerettete Bär hat die Chance ein glücklicher Bär zu werden.
    Liebe Grüße Moni K

  7. Four Paws macht eine sehr gute Arbeit.
    Ich freue mich für die Bären. 🙂
