Unfortunately, many bears are still suffering, and are being exploited simply as entertainment for humans. It's beyond time for change.

Having spent much of my life in the bush watching and photographing bears in their natural setting, the thought of seeing them in captivity and ( worse) being forced to perform is nauseating.

The lives these animals lead is terrifying and brutal from the day they are stolen from their mothers and their teeth are yanked out while fully conscious. It's time to put an end to this cruelty once and for all.

Action completed.....such an insult and cruelty to these intelligent and incredible creatures.......They were not created to entertain humans.....and they were not put on this earth to suffer in the hands of humans. They, as well as all animals, deserve our respect and the unkindness towards them must end. Thanks Cher.
