Video Exposé Narrated by Bob Barker Reveals Chief Saunooke Bear Park's
Anti–Native American Racism, Drug Use, Cruelty to Animals
For Immediate Release:January 11, 2013
Contact:Shakira Croce 202-483-7382
Cherokee, N.C. -- Led by a costumed "bear" and holding signs that read, "Bear
Pits: Cruelty, Racism" and "Close the Bear Pits Now," a group of
PETA supporters will screen video footage (available here) from its new undercover
investigation of Chief Saunooke Bear Park (CSBP) outside the main park entrance
on Saturday. The action comes less than a week after PETA released the
investigation (available here), which documented systemic
neglect, deprivation of food and veterinary care, and abuse of bears as well as
sexual harassment by one employee and illegal drug use by another. In addition,
an employee called Native Americans "long-distance corn
n*****s," and the facility's manager admitted to a secret policy against
hiring Native Americans.
When: Saturday, January 12, 12 noon
Where: Outside Chief Saunooke Bear Park, near the corner of Tsali Boulevard and Acquoni Road and in front of the sign for the reservation, Cherokee
TV icon and animal activist Bob Barker, who narrates PETA's
footage of CSBP, has joined PETA in calling for CSBP's bears to be confiscated
and relocated to an accredited sanctuary without delay. PETA has also filed formal
complaints with federal agencies and the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation
regarding CSBP's discriminatory hiring practices, failure to pay workers the
minimum wage, and more.
"CSBP is a miserable place on
every level, from the neglect and deprivation of the bears to the racism and
sexual harassment of employees," says PETA Senior Vice President of
Cruelty Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch. "PETA's exposé shows the need
to shut down these miserable pits."

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.
