adorable. Good thing thy won't have to life their lifes out as exploited dancing bears
Good to see that the trend is declining, i think people are starting to see that "tradition" and "entertainment" isn't fun anymore as soon as suffering animals are involved

It is great to hear that the sordid practice of bear dancing is almost over due to the diligence and persistence of organizations like WSPA. Bears should never have to live under those conditions being exploited for human entertainment. One of the biggest ways to stop this practice forever is to continue to educate people. Thanks for posting.
