VIDEO: Watch Orphaned Bear Cubs Get Fed

Jump to 2:20 to see the wild reaction of a pack of orphaned bear cubs to a worker at the Clean Forest Toropetsky Biological Research Center bringing them a meal. The center, founded in 1999 and located in the Tver region, aims to protect and preserve endangered wildlife. The bear cubs shown in the video are being rehabilitated to re-enter the wild after being orphaned.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.
