On December 7th, global animal welfare organization FOUR PAWS rescued Albania’s last captive brown bear. The bear, named Mark, was kept in captivity as a tourist attraction next to a restaurant in Tirana, Albania for over twenty years. Mark will be taken to a bear sanctuary in Austria, which provides rescued bears a life-long home in a near-natural habitat.
