It's not the first time Four Paws has taken in Kosovo's captive brown bears. In 2013, two 10-year old bears were rescued from a restaurant as police restrained angry proprietors, the AP reports.
Due to fragmenting habitats, local populations of brown bears are shrinking across Southeastern Europe. In 2010, Four Paws established Bear Sanctuary Prishtina after Kosovo outlawed private ownership of brown bears.
