I borrowed a copy of this book from my local public library.
Rough hands grabbed Yasha. Creatures with two legs instead of four put him in a box with bars so he couldn’t escape.
The scientists were always kind and gentle, but they wore special clothing to cover their smell and never talked or played with the cubs. They wanted to make sure the cubs would grow up to live as wild bears.
