What a wonderful discovery in the Carpathian Mountains. There are no wild bears in Ukraine, as far as I know, so no possibility of release into the wild in that country. Would these bears be accepted by local bears & benefit if they were transported to, say, BC in Canada for release into the wild? Or are they better off where they are? There is a beautiful, enchanting lake with its own isolated eco-system (&, I believe, some unique types of frogs & fish) not far from the bears' home, high up in the park & very much worth visiting.
