Pizza the Polar Bear needs our help!

This petition had 174,730 supporters

Pizza the bear, a.k.a "the world's saddest polar bear" currently resides in cramped quarters at a Chinese shopping center in the southern city of Guangzhou where visitors to the Grandview Mall like to pose for selfies with him and the other residents of the aquarium. 

His sad plight ignited controversy on an international scale when Hong Kong-based charity Animals Asia exposed the substandard conditions of the aquarium.

Now, a publicized offer from Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, England, to re-home the bear seems to have offered some hope of a happy ending for Pizza.  

Th program at Yorkshire strives to improve the welfare of polar bears worldwide through educational efforts and, when necessary, by providing a home for bears found to be living in poor conditions. The park has rehabilitated four bears on its special conservation site, which has been built to simulate a summer Arctic tundra.

However, according to Animal Asia's Welfare Director David Neale who helped to facilitate the offer of a new home, sadly that might not happen as the Grandview mall does not think it needs outside intervention. 

Please help get Pizza the life he deserves and help to petition the U.S Ambassador to China and China's Ambassador to the U.S to get Grandview to release Pizza, but to also not let them obtain any other animals for the mall.
