Bears have their teeth and claws removed, are tethered to a post and are subjected to repeated assaults by dogs until it dies. Without teeth or claws, the bear cannot defend itself and is tormented simply for entertainment.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Until signing my first petition on this alleged "sport," I thought this cruel practice was long gone. It seems it was popular in England by the sixteenth century because of the general fear and ignorance of nature. Apparently some people want to hang onto fear, ignorance and brutality. Signed!

Disgustingly signed and noted Cher. The saddest thing of all is that I am not surprised that this is still happening. I will never allow myself to become immune to these consistent acts of brutality and I will sign every last petition and I will fight to my last breath to bring those who are so horrifically cruel to justice. I just find the fact that I am not surprised anymore to be a tragedy in and of itself.

“May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their pain. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power, and may people befriend all life. May those of all species who find themselves lost, the young, the aged, the unprotected, be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.”—Buddhist Prayer for Peace
