Another orphan bear cub found wandering alone without its mother has been taken in and cared for by the wildlife protection organization Arcturos.

The shelter keepers at the organization named the cub “Luigi” after the Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus because the bear likes to play with and hold a ball. The months-old cub was found by a citizen wandering on a dangerous motorway in the regional road network of Florina, where there have been a large number of fatal traffic accidents involving bears.

If all goes well, the bear will then be release
