Yampil, an Asiatic black bear, has been able to find a new home in Scotland after being a victim of Russia’s war in Ukraine. The bear, who endured an incredibly difficult experience, will now have a chance to start anew in a different country.
According to Adam Welsh, the head of education at Five Sisters Zoo in West Calder, Scotland, this individual has endured a great deal. They have been in the midst of a war-torn area and have faced extremely unpleasant circumstances.
In 2022, during the ongoing conflict, Ukrainian soldiers took control of a zoo that had been destroyed by bombing. They managed to save Yampil, who was named after the village in eastern Ukraine where he was rescued just in time.
