Zhorik and his new “dining room”22 Sep, 2017
Just look at beautiful Zhorik exploring his new “dining room”! Zhorik has a huge 1.5 hectares territory of the forest all for himself, but loves spending his time in this enclosure. He came to the Centre as a young cub, after he got neglected and nearly killed by a travelling circus.
He was fed chicken bones, a piece of bone stuck in his jaw and caused the infection, that was completely neglected by the circus. He nearly died, after a wrong diagnosis, but was rescued and underwent 9 surgeries. He will never be able to live a wild life, but after 9 surgeries and a large natural habitat funded by the kind donors of Forgotten Animals, he got the best life captivity can offer!
He lost a piece of his cheek, but apart from that is healthy and is living a happy life cared for by the amazing team of UTYOS.
