Bear Park A new home for Bern’s mascots

After nearly 500 years in a pit, Bern’s famous bears have a new home: a riverside reserve on the edge of the old city. The opening of the new enclosure brings to an end years of protests by tourists and animal lovers, who complained that the pit was an unsuitable place to keep bears. (Julie Hunt, swissinfo.ch/SF)
