Praise Nepal for Rescue of Dancing Bears

Target: Prakash Aryal, Chief of Nepal Police

Goal: Praise rescue of dancing bears in Nepal.

Two sloth bears in Nepal have been rescued from years of being forced to dance for spectators. Additionally, the practice of making bears dance has been officially declared illegal in Nepal, following the lead of countries such as Turkey and Greece.

The practice of forcing bears to dance is inhumane. Bears are taken from their mothers as cubs, with the mothers being subsequently killed and the cubs forced to undergo cruel training methods. Bear dancing has been in practice for centuries to entertain humans, with no thought as to how it impacts the animals forced to perform under such conditions.

Rangila and Sridevi, the two rescued bears, are currently traumatized and will need long-term special care to recover from their horrific lifestyle, but it is said that many bears rescued from dancing have recovered well and lived long and healthy lives. The pair will live out the rest of their days in a wildlife sanctuary.

The end of a cruel and inhumane practice is cause for celebration. Sign this petition to thank the local police for aiding in the rescue of Rangila and Sridevi.


Dear Chief Aryal,

Your aid in the rescue of the last two dancing bears in Nepal is deeply appreciated. The tradition of forcing bears to dance for human entertainment is cruel and unnecessary; it forces cubs away from their mothers to undergo harsh training, and the rescued bears are heavily traumatized by the lifestyle. The fact that the practice is now illegal adds to the joy of this rescue, as no more bears will be ripped from their natural habitat and cruelly exploited.

Thank you for aiding the Jane Goodall Institute and World Animal Protection in saving these innocent animals from a lifetime of being exploited for human entertainment. These two bears will need lots of time to recover, but they are free thanks to your efforts and assistance.

    there is no need for animals to be entertained unless they were anthropomorphic animals in media that is just fine.
