Medveotthon Bear Farm. Hungary

Type of Animals Involved
Bears, wolves, raccoons

Extent of Contact
The bears and wolves have large enclosures including wooded areas. The linx were in smaller enclosures. I was told this was temporary

Unnatural Behaviour
Bears are all rescue animals who come up to the fence to eat honey off wooden spoons fed by tourists. The raccoons also eat honey and are a little overweight!

Instruments of Control or Restraint

Overall Impression / Feedback
On balance, although allowing tourists to feed honey isn’t natural, these are all rescue animals and appear to be content.
