For many years now a large number of wild animals have lived under illegal and completely inhumane and inadequate conditions where they are being kept as an attraction and marketing tool for restaurants and other catering establishments or in private zoo.

Signed in disgust. Now that they are finished having people gawk at them they feel they can just kill them.

They are not euthanizing these bears. I say this over and over, euthanization is for ending due to a terminal disease or some other form of suffering that will never end. These bears just need proper care, not death.

Why don't they 'euthanise' their own offspring if they cannot refrain from such filthy/disgusting 'behaviour/practices'??

Noted and signed. If these animals were left alone to live in the wild, they would take good care of themselves; instead, they are captured, encaged, and neglected by irresponsible and, pardon the expression, stupid people. They should be free -- not kept in captivity. The private ownership of "exotic pets" should be outlawed.
