Please Help End The Suffering Of These Bears

Below is a message from Rochelle Regodon of PETA Hong Kong. PLEASE DO NOT PATRONIZE A ROAD SIDE BEAR SHOW IF YOU VISIT COUNTRIES SUCH AS INDIA, PAKISTAN, TURKEY, ETC. RSC has written to the Ministers below to help end the suffering of these bears. We hope you will do the same.

"Even though it is illegal to capture bears in both India and Pakistan , there are still more than 1,600 sloth bears being forced to dance for money by madaris.

Bear cubs who are barely one year old squeal in agony as red-hot needles are jabbed through their noses and thick ropes are forced through the throbbing wounds.

When the ropes are tugged, the bears lift their legs and ‘dance’. Most of their teeth are pulled out, and they are forced to perform for up to 12 hours a day.

Bears are ‘trained’ to dance through a regime of pain and starvation. Many cubs die before the training begins because of the stress of capture, the terrible transportation conditions, starvation, dehydration, and rough handling.

Although they live up to 30 years in the wild, ‘dancing’ bears rarely live more than eight years in captivity. Click here to watch video:

Want to do more for dancing bears? Besides forwarding this video ( to everyone you know, you can write polite letters to the environmental ministers of Pakistan and India and urge them to enforce laws that prevent bear baiting and prosecute madaris.
