ATHENS. A Greek car driver has saved the life of a few months old orphaned brown bear. “Luigi” is now being fed by a bear conservation organization.

The animal was found a few days ago on a road in the mountainous region of Pindos in northwestern Greece and was taken up by the bear conservation organization Arcturos near Nymfaion. “The little one is fine now. We have fed him up, “said the spokesman for Arcturos, Panos Stefanou, on Wednesday the German Press Agency.

The little bear already has a name. “He likes to play with balls, so we named him after the name of the famous Italian goalkeeper Luigi,” said Stefanou, looking at Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus.

The wildlife conservation organization released a video of the little Luigi.

Arcturos has saved dozens of bears in recent decades. There are currently 21 bears under the protection of the organization. (AP)
