you mess with bears, sometimes you get hurt. Of course, PETA's
"bear" didn't actually harm a hair on the heads of the animal abusers
at Chief Saunooke Bear
Park (CSBP) during a protest last weekend, but he and about two dozen of his friends
did bite back against the cruelty at the vile roadside zoo.
protest comes less than a week after the release of the findings of our undercover investigation of CSBP that unearthed evidence of systemic neglect and abuse of bears
(including shooting and eating one of
them), threats of violence, illegal drug use, sexual harassment, and racism by the park's staff. We are calling for the closure of the hellish bear
pits and the seizure of the surviving animals.
What You Can Do
If you didn't make it to the demonstration, don't worry—you
can still help the bears suffering at CSBP by asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture to confiscate all animals from the shabby roadside zoo immediately and place
them in a suitable sanctuary.
you have a general question for PETA and would like a response, please e-mail Info@peta.org. If you need to report cruelty to
an animal, please click

animal and if the abuse is taking place right now, please call your local
police department. If the police are unresponsive, please call PETA
immediately at 757-622-7382 and press 2.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
