300kg European brown bear

Erich is an 8-year-old brown bear who arrived in the BEAR SANCTUARY Arbesbach on 6 October, 2015.
Before that, he lived together with his sister and mother in a small concrete enclosure in a park in Upper Austria. That park was closed by the officials in 2012. FOUR PAWS took over the bears and brought them to the BEAR SANCTUARY in Arbesbach

Erich has settled in quickly and enjoys his new life with his family.

His favourite food are nuts, pears, apples, salad and grapes.
