When a bear named Riku first arrived at a sanctuary last year, he had to adjust to an entirely different kind of life.
Riku had been kept chained up in a tiny shack next to a man's house in Albania. Most likely he had been kept captive since he was a small cub. By the time he was 2 years old, he was too big for his owner to handle. Day and night he was chained up, unable to feel sunlight or step on fresh grass.
