Bouba, a 3-year old female bear, plays in the snow at the Synevyr National Nature Park February 29, 2012. Because of being kept in captivity before, Bouba doesn't hibernate during the winter. The Vier Pfoten (Four Paws) animal welfare organisation, together with the authorities, confiscated and transferred the bear to the park. In 2011, the Ukrainian Minister Of Ecology And Natural Resources Zlochevsky Mykola announced a ban on the poor private captivity of brown bears.
