Tomi isn't the only Albanian bear who will soon be joining their ranks.
When rescuers found Pashuk, he was languishing in a too-small cage, semi-strangled by a collar that had burrowed deep into his neck.
"I saw many suffering bears, but I have never seen anything like this," Hertwig notes in the press release. "The chain was grown in so deeply that the skin had already grown over it. His owners had put Pashuk on the chain when he was still small, locked him in the shed and never removed the chain ever since."
