Animal world-Tending to bears

Tending to bears

Ivan Leshenko, a 74 year old pensioner living in the Ussurisyk region of Russia's Far East, looks after 11 Himalayan bears with his wife, Luboy. BBC Russian went to see them to find out how they did it.

Ten years ago, the authorities in Ussuriysyk created a shelter for wounded or abandoned animals on the outskirts of Mr Leshenko's village. Now there are only few bears left, and the couple are the only ones looking after them.
