It goes without saying that this is absolutely the most barbaric and endlessly cruel thing to do to an animal. How can you do this to an innocent animal? Where is your compassion and sense of right or wrong? First of all, training dogs in this manner is cruel to the dogs because they will be coming up against animals that have teeth and claws so already they are not prepared for resistance, and secondly and more importantly, depriving bears of a their natural defenses and chaining them up goes above and beyond the heights of cruelty. What a hideous way to treat animals. Does not reflect very well on your country.

How could anyone look at that awful abuse and not cry over it is beyond me. There are no words, just utter sorrow for this poor helpless Bear.
I wish I lived close enough to do more.....Since Putin is trying to put his image out there as a "good guy" like the photo ops of his glider leading the birds migrating....maybe he will save Masha as a photo op. I don't have any illusions about his compassion but he is pretty good at photo ops.
I hope someone saves this poor bear. That picture is going to haunt me.

Heartbreaking picture!!! Russia the world is watching you and hoping you will do the right thing and let Masha and all bears used for bear baiting go to a sanctuary and be treated with compassion and kindness,in Pakistan they use this barbaric practice too.Masha has already endured a life of misery in the circus now its time to let her enjoy some freedom away from pain and fear. I can't bear to think of their suffering as i go to sleep at night.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx
