Natalia Popova, 50, gaan voort om in oorlogsones te reis waar sy reeds honderde diere opgespoor en gered het, before she rehabilitates them and finds them a permanent home elsewhere in Europe.
“No one wants to go there. Everyone is afraid. Ek is ook bang, but I go anyway,” Popova said. “I feel very sorry for them. I can imagine the stress animals are under because of the war, and no one can help them.”
“They are my life,” het sy bygevoeg “My mission in this war is to save wild animals.”
