Please Don't Let Another Bear Cub Die in Russia's Hibernating Bear Hunt

Target: President Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin
Sponsored by: International Fund for Animal Welfare
It's hard to imagine the cruelty of the Russian winter bear hunt.

A mother bear is violently shaken from her winter hibernation, forced out of her den, and shot by a wealthy trophy hunter. She dies bravely protecting her den, while inside her tiny and defenseless cubs are left motherless. It's heartbreaking to think of the cubs orphaned and left to slowly freeze to death.

Each year, den hunting leaves up to 4,000 cubs motherless. Some of these homeless cubs end up as pets to local villagers, while others are taken to entertain tourists or be eaten in restaurants. Most are abandoned and left to die.

Brown bears in Russia are one of the last remaining healthy brown bear populations in the world -- Tell Russia to outlaw den hunting.
Please sign the petition & forward  & X-post to everyone you know!
