General September 27, 2016

Displayed in cages in Albania's restaurants or shackled on beaches, the bears' role is to attract tourists, who can pose with them for one euro per photographThe two five-year-old Albanian bears carry physical and mental scars from their days of mistreatment and captivity — Pashuk has marks from the tight chain on his neck, while Tomi is an alcoholic. The pair are temporarily staying in Tirana zoo after they were rescued from their jailers, amid a new drive to liberate the Balkan country's cruelly caged brown bears.
