Target: Los Angeles County Fair Association

Goal: Stop forcing bears to perform for human entertainment

The Los Angeles County Fair is an anticipated event in California in which thousands of people attend for the festivities. Despite such a jolly event, the L.A. county fair unfortunately enlists many animal shows that violate animal rights severely. One in particular, the Welde’s Big Bear show, which is a travelling act run by a husband and wife duo, forces bears to perform for the amusement of humans. Despite the protests and outcry of many animal activists, the Welde’s Big Bear show is still constantly booked for fairs nationally. The show must be stopped in order to save the bears from further cruelty.

The Welde’s Big Bear Company states that the bears have been with its organization for over 80 years, and that all of the bears are licensed. However, the bears are still being subjected to horrible situations and conditions during all hours of the day. When the bears are not performing, they are caged up in tiny confinements that barely allow room for them to roam, like they naturally would out in the open. When the bears are performing, they are forced to do tricks that endanger their physical and mental health since the tricks are hard and often frightening. The bears are taught to balance on a ball and ride scooters, and when they disobey, they are painfully punished.

No animal deserves to go through such torture at the expense of human pleasure and profit. These bears do not belong in fairs, and they definitely were not brought into the world to become entertainment. On top of that, the Welde’s Big Bear group states that many of these bears were raised from infancy, which would imply that these animals never socialized with one another, especially with their mothers. Taking an infant from his or her mother is one of the cruelest acts one can do, and it can severely stunt the physical and mental growth of these bears.

Furthermore, these travelling shows often have an extremely tight schedule, which involves performance after performance throughout the entire country. This strenuous schedule, which definitely maximizes profits for the business, does not give these bears any rest time. They are constantly performing, and punished if they do not obey, which can jeopardize their health and life expectancy. The L.A. County Fair must take a stand and choose not to employ the services the Welde’s Big Bear Show in order to help put an end to the cruelty these bears go through every day.

Dear L.A. County Fair Association,

The fair that your association provides to the community is a great and fun event. However, I urge you to stop employing the Welde’s Big Bear Show as a sign that your association stands for animal rights. Although the Welde’s Big Bear Show may be entertaining and amusing, it is violating animal rights by cruelly forcing bears to perform for entertainment. You and I both know that bears are wild animals that are supposed to roam the woods freely, and not be caged animals.

The bears are constantly performing for shows across the nation, and they rarely have time for a break to recuperate. Their health and living style are greatly jeopardized when fairs, like yours, decide to hire the travelling show. The bears are constantly locked up in small cages that do not allow for a lot of movement, which the bears need. On top of that, the bears are physically punished when they do not perform the tricks correctly, and whenever they disobey.

You must help put an end to this form of animal cruelty by not supporting the Welde’s Big Bear Show.

What’s wrong with you overthere?

Romanian dancing bears in California?

How in the world can it be that Eastern European imbecility is allowed in the United States?

Can hardly believe it, it’s a disgrace for the U.S. and far beneath its’ dignity!

Because it is bondage and slavery – and bears in the wild do NOT Dance! Yes, it is beneath us.. you are right, even though you were being passe’ about it.

How can anyone observe or be a party to these crazy obscenities, called entertainment without conscience?
