Synopsis >

The culmination of months of work - orphaned brown bears are released back into the wild in Russia's Tver region. The cubs are taken in by the The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) when their hibernating mothers are shot by hunters. Even though they need human intervention at first, the bears are gradually isolated from people and learn to find food, build dens and hibernate. Rescue Center manager, Sergei Pazhetnov, says he thinks the cubs are ready for winter.
