Bear Necessities: Tell the USDA to Ban Bear Pits Now

Bear Necessities: Tell the USDA to Ban Bear Pits Now:


Cherokee Bear in Pit




Right now, in roadside zoos across the country, dozens of bears are trapped in dungeon-like pits for human amusement. Being confined to pits, like those at the Cherokee Bear Zoo in North Carolina, can cause bears to suffer from a psychological condition known as zoochosis, in which they pace or walk in endless circles out of sheer boredom and deprivation. Living on concrete slabs can cause arthritis, pressure sores, and other painful, debilitating diseases.


Please join us in calling on the USDA to do its job and ban bear pits now!
