By the way James, have you considered launching this petition at any other sites? Here at Care2 you have to download the signatures and either email them to the targets or print them off and send them via the postal service. A fellow Change.org member told me at their site the signatures are automatically forward to the targets. You may want to spread the net a little wider. I remember signing for Katya a few years ago. It kills me to know she and the other animals are still rotting in those cages. International animal welfare outlets need to be alerted to their plight. Have the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW) World Society For the Protection of Animals (WSPA) and any other major animal welfare organizations been contacted regarding their plight? It may be prudent to copy your petition and send it to them asking for their immediate and dire intervention to these animals. Please keep us posted. Thank you for your leadership on this issue.

We forgot this magnificent imprisoned spirit. Previous Care2 petition signed 43,000 people but Katya still spending her days lonely, desperate jumping in the cage and trying to break the metal bars. Katya is 38 year old now... It's time for Katya to go to a sanctuary, where she can finally stretch and roll on the grass!
There are also bears Klava and Pasha, who shares a small cage.

Big thank you James and Michelle!

Noted and signed with hope in my heart for KATYA and all the other animals that served their purpose and are now discarded like rubbish,how can you be so cruel to leave them locked in cages in a bus for years,no space to move around or fresh air,they deserve better and to be shown compassion and kindness after working hard to earn you money,PLEASE have a heart and release these suffering animals to a sanctuary where in old age they can feel the grass under their feet and to know freedom!!!!!!! I have signed petitions for KATYA and the other animals a few years ago and shocked that nothing has been done to set them free from the bus.SHAME on YOU!!!! Thank you Sheila and James. Liz Xx

Myself and other C.O.P.E members will be doing letters to the Russian Embassy in their own area and others if the wish, also animal sanctuaries in local areas to see if we can get a place then put pressure on the own to let her captives go and to be cared for. I thank you for all the help and anyone whats to help all the can please feel free to join us on FB or on C2 C.O.P.E Carers Of Planet Earth. Thank you all for the help keep pushing with respect always, James.
