Circus bear Mura wound up in the world's biggest brown bear sanctuary in the heart of Romania's Carpathian mountains after refusing to perform any longer, following five years of unbearable abuse.Caged, beaten and starved by their owners, 80 bears rescued from captivity have been taken in to be healed of trauma at the "Libearty" sanctuary, but the process can be slow.The first two bears at the sanctuary were Lidia and Cristi, who for seven years shared a small pen – measuring a mere five square meters – by a restaurant whose clients amused themselves by giving the animals beer.All of the bears in the sanctuary have a "sad but educational" story, said Ciotlos.2 million euros ($2.2 million) have been invested in the sanctuary, which welcomed more than 20,000 tourists in 2014 – about 60 percent of them foreigners.
