Russia has agreed to accept three bear cubs from the Alaveski wildlife park in southern Estonia, which has been ordered to relocate its nine bears because their living conditions do not meet animal welfare standards.
The Russian veterinary and food authority, Rosselkhoznadzor, has informed the Estonian Food and Veterinary Board that the three bear cubs are able to be relocated to Russia.
The news was confirmed to BNS by Olev Kalda, the deputy director of the Food and Veterinary Board, on Tuesday April 6, 2016.
