Tiny Gavroche

Tiny Gavroche, a male Himalayan bear cub, was brought to the centre in March. His mother was most likely shot by cowardly poachers while she was still hibernating and nursing her young in her winter den. He was tiny and malnourished!

Yana Panova, the centre’s vet and foster bear mum, quickly put Gavroche on a nourishing diet of 5-cereal porridge with fresh fish, meat and vegetables. After a few days of scoffing up his nutritious dinners, Gavroche started to gain much needed weight and strength. And just a few weeks later, Gavroche was joined by another fuzzy bear who looked very different to him…
