End Tomi's suffering and release him to a sanctuary

Tomi the bear is kept in a run-down restaurant in mountains of Albania where diners can watch the animal as they eat.

Locked in a concrete cage with no water or food, he has to rely on vistors to give him scraps, sweets and crisps. He can be seen begging with paws outstretched.

Tomi displays disturbing behaviour such as chewing his limbs and spasms - a result of the 'unbearable' living conditions and boredom.

His owner, who hunted him down with a tranquiliser gun, simply blames boredom and sees no problems.

Please sign and help get Tomi out of this hell hole. This is cruelty and Tomi needs to live in a sancturary away from this awful place.

Update #15 years ago
Hi all,

It worked!! We would like to inform you that The Albanian authorities have taken the appropriate measures to protect the bear and move Tomi to a Kosovo sanctuary, which caters to the needs of Brown bears who have suffered cruelty. Tomi will be going to the sanctuary in Oct.
