Endangered brown bears rehomed at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Four endangered bears have been rehomed in Yorkshire after being transported more than 5,400 miles from Japan.

Riku, Kai, Hanako and Amu had been living in cramped conditions ( 3 x 3 metres on concrete only) at a museum on the island of Hokkaido.

All four are now settling in to their new home at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park (YWP), near Doncaster, after being flown from Tokyo to London.

Animal charity Wild Welfare said the bears will receive “rehabilitation, enrichment and lifelong care”.
