The poor animals. I'm not a big animal lover, but this was heartbreaking. The bear was held in a cage smaller than our living room and the wolfs where kept in a small open field infront of a herd of literally howling kids.

An hour's drive from Brest, this park has a replica of an old farm house, makes vodka and has a zoo (unusual for a national park). The zoo has two beautiful brown bears in small damp concrete and steel cages.
