Stop Forcing Bears to Do Ridiculous Tricks for Entertainment

Target: Welde’s Bear Show

Goal: Demand that Welde’s Bear Show retire its bears to an accredited sanctuary.

Welde’s Bear Show is a traveling “educational” bear show that forces bears to do ridiculous tricks in front of large, jeering crowds. Welde’s is currently on tour, and it is time to stop this unnecessary cruelty.

The bears used in Welde’s Bear Show are reportedly forced to ride scooters, balance on balls, pull their bodies through hoops and walk on their hind legs. Training techniques for wild animals can include excessive chaining, abuse and neglect. While they travel, the bears are allegedly kept in small cages where they have limited access to the outside world and friends. In the wild, bears will roam great distances, play with friends, climb and build nests. In captivity, these animals are denied almost everything natural to them.

Sign this petition and demand that Welde’s Bear Show retire its bears to an accredited sanctuary. If the owners truly care about the bears’ well-being, then they will know a sanctuary is the best place for them.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Welde,

Forcing bears to do ridiculous tricks for human entertainment is anything but educational. It is time to stop forcing these bears to perform and let them live the life nature intended.

In the wild, bears roam for miles, play with friends, splash in rivers and lakes, sunbath, climb and build nests. In captivity, these bears are unable to do these things and are instead subjected to cages and forced to ride scooters, walk on their hind legs, balance on balls and do tricks with hoops. Not to mention, the arenas where the bears perform are incredibly stressful environments for these wild animals because they are typically crowded and loud.

Please consider retiring your bears to an accredited sanctuary where they can happily live out the rest of their days.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Bears are not meant to be ENTERTAINERS, NOR EXPLOITED!!! Animal Welfare O ver Profits!!

  3. These poor bears have suffered far too long. They should be sent to a good sanctuary. Animal exploitation and cruelty are NEVER acceptable for ANY reason – whether it be “education”, profits, entertainment or any other reason.

  9. Paula Eggleston says:

    I’m signing yet another petition regarding the exploitation of animals for money. I feel like it falls on deaf and dumb ears…an exercise in futility. The only thing that will stop the abuse of any animal for profit is if the public will just stop paying to see it. Mr. Welde doesn’t care one bit about how his bears feel or their need to live a normal bear life in a sanctuary…or he wouldn’t be in that business to begin with. It’s like asking a serial killer to have empathy for the victims he kills.
    Please people stop PAYING to support these animal acts…only when they go out of business will the animals have a chance for freedom.
    Shame on you Mr. Welde for cruel soul…

  10. Poor wretched creatures. So noble and proud brought down to this level!!! Evil bastards. Mankind makes wild creatures perform ridculous tricks all for a few bucks. Evil mankind abuses wild and domestic animals alike. Is there any breed of animal thats isnt abused?! Fucking cowards are all these evil bastards!!!

  11. Save these poor bears. Ban the use of all animals in circuses and for entertainment. So wrong.
