Bears Borys, Misza and Wania spent many years eating sweets before they ended up at the Polish zoo.
Borys performed for ten years in a circus, while Misza and Wania lived in a Moscow tower block with their keeper.
The trio spent some time at an animal shelter in Korabiewice, central Poland, before they eventually settled ar the Poznan zoo.

The three bears had to be put to sleep before the dentists could get to work on Friday.
“Probably several teeth will have to be removed,” commented zoo spokesperson Marta Grzeskowiak. (nh)
