We need your help to make sure that the USDA does the right thing
and enacts stronger regulations for captive bears!
Despite dragging its heels for more than a year after PETA petitioned it to enact stronger regulatory protection for bears, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has finally opened the public comment period for consideration of this critical proposal. Now we need your help to make sure that the agency does the right thing and enacts stronger regulations for captive bears!
The USDA will be accepting public comments on this matter until January 27, 2014, and it is critical that the agency receives overwhelming support for these regulatory improvements. Please urge the USDA to implement regulations requiring that captive bears be provided with adequate space, enrichment, naturalistic habitats, nutritious diets, and opportunities to den, explore, run, bathe, and engage in other behavior that is necessary for a bear's minimum physical and psychological well-being.
