Animal trainer Sacha Boldyrev says goodbye to Benya, a 10-year-old male bear, who is inside an ambulant state circus trailer in Koziatyn, Vinnytsia Region, about 240 km (150 miles) from Kiev May 9, 2012. The Vier Pfoten (Four Paws) animal welfare organisation, together with authorities, confiscated the bear to be transferred to the Synevyr National Nature Park.
