PETA ‘Bear’ Leads Protest Outside Nightmarish Roadside Zoo

Written by PETA | January 15, 2013

When 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.

PETA’s 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.

    These findings are abhorrent, unethical, criminal, and unacceptable. All of the people involved in this horrible situation need to be brought to justice.

    This is a clear sign of animal abuse. It needs to stop now! They are wild animals who should be treated with respect not treated as trash.
