Last year, experts from the Wildwood Trust stepped in to help them. They loaded Milcho and Gosho in a truck and drove the long journey back to the bears' new home at the trust's sanctuary in Kent, England.
Though they were free of the dark cells that had held them for so many years, the bears' physical and mental health was still fragile after their lifelong ordeal. For that reason, rescuers initially kept them apart for their own safety - but no longer.
This week, Milcho and Gosho were introduced, and their meeting was breathtaking. For the first time, they weren't alone.
