On May 28 we published an article on this website in which we highlighted the bizarre situation of bear Ekatarina, who was imprisoned in a Kazakstan jail. According to a Kazakh news agency, bear Ekaterina (she is also called Katya) was released on the 5th of June. After spending more than 15 years inside the prison walls in Kostanay, she was relocated to a small zoological park in the North of Kazakhstan. There are already two other bears – Yashka & Nika, former rescues from a circus, to accompany her. On hearing this news, we closed the petition. A big thank you to all the people who signed the petition! We are glad that Ekatarina can look forward to a better life.
