    Walled in by concrete, Masha the bear’s only glimpse of the outside world was through the metal grille above her head.

    The nine-year-old animal had been imprisoned in a tiny cell behind a restaurant, kept alive only by occasional scraps of food thrown in by the owners.

    When she was finally rescued, firemen had to use bolt cutters to break open the inch-thick bars.

    I'd love to see a follow up on this story. I hope she's living the life that she was meant to have.

    Heart-breaking footage shows the moment the owner of a bear who forced her to perform in a circus for nearly 20 years watched as she is released into a sanctuary.

    Trainer Sasha handed over his bear Masha – pronounced Marsha – to animal rescuer Lionel De Lange For Masha, meaning the end of a life being muzzled, led on a rope, and performing tricks like riding a scooter and jumping through hoops for an audience.

    The video shows the moment Masha leaves her cage to see that she is now free to roam in a new 350-square-metre purpose-built sanctuary – after previously being kept in the back of a van.

    I’m really glad Masha is free at last.

    Oh bless her. I hope she recovers from the trauma of her captivity and loss of her mother so young and goes on to lead a happy, long life in the care of people who love her.
