Orphaned bear cub Aida finds refuge in Bosnian village

Updated : 2019-05-17 16:23:07

In a mountain village in Bosnia, the Becars are making friends with a new addition to their family - an orphaned baby bear who fled nearby woods in search of food and shelter.The two-month-old female cub first showed up near Gunjani last weekend but locals, fearing her mother might come looking for her, directed her away from the village.The next morning she came back and the Becars decided to take care of her, naming her Aida."When we first saw her, she couldn't walk properly and was probably starving. I gave her some milk and we brought her here," said Sija Becar.Contented but still a little unsteady on her feet, Aida ran in circles around the family's courtyard before allowing herself to be stroked by Sija and her son Zakir.
