After 12 years in a circus cage, last May Giambolina, who was called the “loneliest bear in the world”, was finally allowed to experience freedom in Swiss Alps. This is reported by The Daily Mail.

Activists tried for many years to get the animal transferred to the reserve, but a few months later, after their efforts were finally crowned with success, this bear died.

This animal spent its entire life in Ukrainian circus and never saw his brothers. His habitat was limited to a cage and a circus arena.

The she-bear got a chance to be free during the coronavirus pandemic. There were no circus performances and, accordingly, income, so the circus management decided to free him from 12 years of slavery and give him to animal rights activists.

However, Jambolina's freedom lasted only a few weeks: she died during a routine dental operation.

The Four Paws Charitable Organization has agreed to save the bear. At the end of last year, she was put to sleep for a while to be transported to the Arosa Bear Land in Switzerland.

“She's been kept alone in a tiny cage at the circus since she was a bear cub,” explained Katherine Brown of Four Paws International.

According to the director of the Ukrainian representative office of the organization Taras Boyko, saving the animal was not an easy task . She was transported through Poland, Germany and Austria in conditions when strict coronavirus restrictions were still in effect.

Even though Giambolina never hibernated in her natural habitat, her natural instincts quickly emerged in Switzerland. In December 2021, she went into hibernation for the first time, which lasted until May. Subsequently, she was introduced to the male Meimo, who was brought from Albania, where he was also kept in captivity.
