I liked the video included with the petition using Bob Barker's strong voice. Bob Barker's vegan diet appears to be keeping him active even at 90 years old. He is a great friend of all creatures and Sea Shepard has both a ship and a helicopter because of Bob Barker's support.

noted and signed.....what a disgusting practice and a horrid horrid place. I would not promote visits to NC or any state where animals are allowed to suffer so openly.

Noted. Signed it already.

Bears deserve respect and freedom while they belong to the wild. People have no right to hold them captive and turn them into exhibits. Obviously, these innocent bears are condemned to a life in prison-like conditions, without even their basic needs being met. People who are doing this to them and fail to see why this is wrong deserve being shut in such a concrete prison themselves, just to see what it is like (giving them a taste of their own medicine will likely be most educational).

I hope this exposure will make people refrain from visiting this place, or such places for that matter, and protest against this cruelty. May these bears live to a better future!

Julie E raises an EXCELLENT point!

I do not trust PETA....I've seen them in action....they have no problem with lies, distortions and use of Bob Barker, who has parroted those same lies, thinking he was telling the truth!

If you sign sure you unsubscribe to the next email you get from PETA.

And you WILL get unwanted emails.

Noted, signed, twittered and google shared. I am beside myself with fury at this bastard for treating these amazing animals so inhumanely. He needs to be brought up on charges, forced to pay for the relocation, veterinary care, food and water, and all expenses incurred for relocation. He also should spend as much time as possible in jail. He should also have to make a public apology for his cruel and vicious treatment of these bears. I can not believe he has not been shut down already. WTF is wrong with people like this?!
