Heartwarming moment brown bear and two cubs released into wild after a decade in captivity [video]

This is the heartwarming moment a brown bear and her cubs were released into the wild after a decade in captivity. Dasha and her one-year-old cubs Luka and Coco can be seen racing along the mountain meadows exploring their new territory.

Syrian brown bear Dasha had spent 10 years living in a cramped cage half-submerged in water as part of a tourist attraction in the Armenian mountains. Dasha would spend days pacing around the cage and climbing its bars in a desperate bid to escape - while diners watched from a nearby restaurant.
