This video tells the true story of four bears that were freed from prison after a 20 year sentence through the efforts of PETA. You have to watch the video to see the tiny cages, minuscule beds that look like dog houses, and dirty conditions the bears lived their entire lives in. You will see the dirty and waste filled cages as an example of what human negligence can do to animals.
After 20 long years of prison and servitude the four bears are set free in July of 2015 in a huge animal sanctuary in Colorado. The bear’s freedom gives you the same feeling that you get when Quasimodo rescues Esmeralda from the hangman in ‘The Hunchback of Notre-Dame’ and exclaims “Sanctuary.”
You have to understand that the bears have never seen or experienced romping around in a natural environment and being free. The little video makes you feel the release the bears must feel after being caged for so long. While they are old and infirm, the bears will get to live out the rest of their days in the freedom they never had before.
This video will really lift your spirits. Share this one with all of your animal loving friends. It is possible to end the cruelty that roadside zoos impose on animals and if enough people see the video there may be a change in attitude among legislators that allow a barbaric and inhumane practice to continue.
