The has been quite some disturbing photos including a YouTube video  showed the devastating cage and the environment where the two males are put.

Animal activists said that they had teamed up with France's Brigitte Bardot to take care of the bill for the bears to travel to the Liberty Bear Sanctuary which is outside of Brasov Romania. The Sanctuary in Brasov is reported to have a 1.5 acre forest that is enclosed with a pool, den, and plenty of oak trees, states its blog.

Petition of moving the two bears

There is also a petition that is being made to the Ministry of Natural Resources in Sochi, Russia that is urging them to provide the legal support that is needed to facilitate the bears to be moved to the Romanian sanctuary.
