Stop the eviction of Animals Asiaís Vietnam bear rescue centre

Nguyễn Tấn Dũng, Prime Minister
Socialist Republic of Vietnam
Office of the State
1 Bach Thao
Hanoi, Vietnam
Fax: + 845 5464

Dear Honourable Prime Minister,

I write to express my deep concern about the recent attempts to evict Animals Asia and its world-class bear sanctuary from Vietnamís Tam Dao National Park.

I am appalled that this situation has arisen, particularly as the Vietnam government is leading the way in Southeast Asia by working with Animals Asia to end bear bile farming.

The eviction is in direct violation of the Vietnam governmentís 2005 agreement with Animals Asia to fund and develop a facility on 12 hectares of the park that would permanently rehabilitate and house 200 endangered bears rescued from the illegal bear bile industry. Based on this agreement, Animals Asia has invested more than US$2 million in building and infrastructure.

The closure would see 104 bears that have been rescued from the bile industry evicted, 77 Vietnamese staff made unemployed, and financial losses to Animals Asia of more than US$2 million. The local economy that depends on the centre would be severely impacted, and the Vietnamese governmentís commitment to ending bear bile farming would be called into question.

I write to ask that you honour your agreement with Animals Asia and support the organisation's right to continue operating its sanctuary.

Please honour your agreement to Animals Asia and stop the eviction.

Yours sincerely,


Cher C. (1462)

Signed and my wife did as well. Thank you Cher. Sorry to see that Asian bears are still suffering after being rescued and now are being evicted, more trauma for the bears.. Again, the greedy rich are at work to sabotage any progress in animal welfare. Corruption in some Asian countries seems to be so obvious, it is sickening.

Meanwhile I also sent an email to the Vietnamese prime minister with the suggested text to increase my impact. I hope I was of some help, Cher, I do feel for those rescued bears and I hope they will remain in their protective environment, they have suffered enough already.

This is an absolute TRAVESTY!!!! These poor bears have endured enough in their lives without this happening to them, how on earth could ANYONE WHO LOVES ANIMALS see these beautiful bears that are now free and have tasted life outside on grass, and in sunshine, free to swim and sleep where and when they want to face life imprisioned again!!!! NO ONE, least of all what this would do to their mental state. This has to be stopped. SIgned and noted and hopefully get some good news and updates on this sad and tragic situation.

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.
