PETA's investigator found that the bored and frustrated bears turn endlessly in circles. One of them routinely rocks back and forth—a sign of profound deprivation and stress. They bite the pits' metal bars, which breaks their teeth. This is painful and can cause bone infections, so it requires veterinary care, but PETA's investigator never saw a veterinarian at CSBP and never saw the bears given any pain relief.

PETA's investigator also found cruelty:

Workers sometimes leave the bears, who have a remarkably well-developed sense of smell, trapped amid their own waste all day long. Instead of removing feces, they spray a citrus-scented product into the pits. One worker told PETA's investigator, "You just got to be careful because [federal officials] think you're trying to hide something. Which we are."
CSBP's manager and bear handler admitted that workers deny bears food because, "[i]f you feed them … they ain't gonna eat for people."
The manager boasted that he sprays water at one bear "all the time … to get his ass up" and force him onto display.
The park's bear handler said it took "20 shots … in the head" to kill one of CSBP's bears. He said that there is "[n]othing better than a bear that's been eating bread and apples all its life. Meat's good."

People who make suffer the innocent helpless animals should in return suffer the same & more. Those are heartless ruthless scums. Government needs to Tighten the Rules of keeping such animals in captivity & the law breakers must be punished & fine.

I would hope that this investigation results in the confiscation and rehoming of these bears.

Thanks so much everyone for speaking out for these bears its so very upsetting to see the people who own these bears and that filthy roadside zoo/pit living in such a lavish house (the bears paid for) while the bears live in a concrete pen and are left hungry all the time so that they will beg for food its disgusting when the owners where asked to fix the place up the woman said "its what they are used to and they dont know any better they are fine this is how they grew up" yet she had nothing growning up yet now that she has lots of money all from the bears she lives a lavish lifestyle she should practice what she preaches about the bears!
