Wild animal rehab is a family business for a Russian couple

A Russian couple says they’re mum and dad to scores of wild animals they look after at a rehab they’ve built on their farm.
The private Phoenix Centre in Central Russia takes in injured wild animals from across the country. What started as a school zoo corner with an owl, today is a well-known shelter for wolves, elks, foxes, birds and even a bear.
Meet the wild and diverse Phoenix family to see how a former school teacher’s idea, became one of the best-known refuges in Russia.
