The bear cub saved by WWF - Armenia settles in the Shikahogh reserve.
The bear cub was found in 2012. The WWF Armenian Office with the support of its German colleagues built a temporary shelter for the animal and hired a vet. Nursing the bear cub for 8 months, the specialists let it free in July 2013 attaching a radio neck collar to its neck.
Talking to ArmInfo, Head of WWF- Armenia Karen Manvelyan said the bear cub called Masha spent the autumn in the Shikahogh reserve and hibernated in December. In March-April, environmentalists will be tracking the bear throughout the reserve.
Earlier Manvelyan said that the data received from the radio neck collar could be used in a research.
