I don't understand how anyone could be entertained by mistreating an animal. It is good to know that an ethical person is standing up for these bears.

Animals are not meant to entertain us, they should be in the wild for they belong to the wild. Take an animal for entertainment is cruel and inhuman.

This is wonderful news for these bears. To have had a life of captivity, being forced to drink to 'amuse' stupid bloody humans is a disgrace. I wish them happiness in their new found freedom when their sanctuary is finished.
