Bears belong to the wild!

    1. Petition by

      Lisa Huntington

      Vancouver, Canada

The private ownership of exotic animals represents a real danger to families, neighbors, communities, and the public at large, as well as to the animals themselves.

Not only bears suffer during capture and transportation, they could get sick or die due to lack of sufficient care or resources at owners’ houses. Bears could attack the humans or spread diseases to them.

Help us pass laws that would prohibit the ownership of exotic animals as pets.
Bears don’t belong in residential areas or cages!

      Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is--whether its victim is human or animal--we cannot expect things to be much better in this world...

      * We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature. By every act that glorifies or even tolerates such moronic delight in killing we set back the progress of humanity.

      These animals are not meant to be kept as pets. Furthermore, this can spread diseases that humans cannot tolerate. (SARS and HIV are two of the best known instances0
