Ukrainian troops have found a trapped bear in ‘terrible condition’ abandoned by Russian forces after the liberation of the main city of Lyman on Sunday.

Soldiers found the animal locked in a small enclosure at a private zoo, surrounded by debris from a nearby exploded grenade.

The bear has since been rescued by UAnimals, a charity dedicated to treating and evacuating the animal victims of the invasion.

The organization says it will take the bear to a wildlife sanctuary for treatment, where he will be rehabilitated once his condition improves.

Yesterday afternoon, UAnimals posted on Facebook: “As soon as our heroic forces liberated Lyman and the area around it from Russian occupation, they immediately found a bear locked in a fence in a private zoo.

“The invaders brutally dealt with most of the wild animals that were kept there, but the bear survived.

“Although he is in a terrible condition and bruised by a grenade that hit the house where he was sitting.

“Three meters from his residence, everything has been destroyed.”

The bear was last seen in the October 5, 2022 post with dirty, matted fur in a small cage.

It is unclear whether Russian troops left the animal in the cage during the occupation, or whether the cage is used to transport the animal.

In an exclusive Daily Mail in May, the newspaper reported that a British Army veteran, Tom, 34, had rescued another bear from appalling living conditions at a tourist resort in Chernivtsi, southwestern Ukraine.

In August, MailOnline reported that hundreds of dogs had also been found dead at an animal shelter in Ukraine after Russian occupiers starved them in their cages for weeks.

UAnimals said up to 485 dogs were locked in their cages at a shelter in Borodyanka, just north of Kiev, by Russian forces shortly after they were invaded on Feb. 24.

Lyman was “unoccupied” by Ukrainian forces last weekend, with Ukrainian President Zelensky on Sunday declaring the important city “completely evacuated.”
