Bears and roadside zoos are well-known features of American cross-country road trips and family vacations, but the conditions endured by animals at roadside attractions and other facilities can be nothing short of traumatic and cruel. Sign the petition!!

Noted and signed.NO animal should be kept in captivity,they should be free to enjoy thier life.What a sad looking bear in the picture,what kind of person would want to stop and see such cruelty and sadness at these so called attractions,heartbreaking the way these wild animals are treated,used and abused to make money out of their suffering day in day out!!!!! Happy to know Ben went to a sanctuary so i pray that these bears and all animals kept in captivity will be helped and know freedom and happiness in a sanctuary too.Thank you Cher.Liz Xx

Signed and noted. I just can't understand why people are so thick that they haven't realised how very cruel this is. I mean, in this day and age there is no excuse for ignorance as the fact that animals like this should never be in captivity and used for people's entertainment There is SO much scientific informattion stating how cruel it is that you would think it would be easy to enforce laws to make sure that this doesn't happen. but it seems that at governments frankly DON'T CARE. Animals are considered SO much less important than other really important issues.. like wars and oil and large corporations and stuffing up the planet as fast as possible! It is Soo frustrating! I am so glad that people n Care 2, like our amazing Cher, work tirelessly to try and DO something about i! Bless you!
