Rescue the ‘Saddest Polar Bear in the World”


Target: Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau in Guangzhou, China
Goal: Rescue the “saddest polar bear in the world” from the Grandview Aquarium located in a shopping mall.

The saddest polar bear in the world remains imprisoned and on display in a tiny aquarium at a Chinese shopping mall. This poor bear, who is being held captive along with five walrus calves, six young beluga whales and two Arctic wolves, is trapped in a “horrifying” enclosure. The bear is forced to pose for selfies with tourists, who bang on the windows and shout at the bear. While shoppers come and go, the bear, and the rest of his fellow prisoners, remain trapped in this “house of horrors.” This poor polar bear may not live much longer in these conditions so we are urgently calling for this shopping mall zoo to send him to a proper sanctuary before it’s too late.

“This bear has no peace and nothing natural to take comfort in. This is a bear that suffers for what? For selfies? For shopping?” said Animals Asia Animal Welfare Director Dave Neale.

Rumors have also been spreading that this zoo has caused the death of numerous animals in recent months and that there is insufficient vet care provided for the animals.

Countless photos and videos show this poor polar bear laying listlessly on the ground while shoppers and tourists bang on the glass seeking a selfie with the bear. This noble and majestic creature deserves better, much better. Demand that the Grandview Aquarium release this captive and abused animal to a proper sanctuary immediately.


Dear Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau,

The saddest polar bear in the world is imprisoned and abused at the Grandview Aquarium in your city. This poor bear, along with other arctic animals, is trapped in a tiny enclosure that doesn’t come close to meeting the needs of a large cold weather animal. The bear is forced to pose for selfies with tourists, who bang on the windows and shout at the bear. This poor polar bear, as well as his fellow prisoners, may not live much longer in these “horrifying” conditions.

Please open an investigation into this shopping mall zoo, and send the animals to a proper sanctuary before it’s too late.

    The Chinese must be the vilest people in the world when it comes to cruelty to animals- and that’s with some stiff competition!

  2. Sara Smith says:

    By the way I see Force Change is running the exact same petition! I suppose we could always sign both!

  3. renate botzler says:

    Best Wishes to you my friend and Great Protection ?
    Special candle for you ?
    Nature treats back now ? Monsters
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Live your nightmare now ?

  4. Do these petitions ever work though? and Sara Smith I completely agree. Vile! look at the Yulin dog meat ‘festival’ and people actually walking past this beautiful bear without a seconds thought for its wellbeing. Maybe their lack of education on welfare principles and the humane treatment of animals? who knows. All I know is I couldn’t walk past and do nothing, I would research and find who is responsible for keeping these poor animals like this, and in a shopping mall, bloody hell! words completely fail me

      I agree will you, Amanda, AND Sara Smith and all others who find the Chinese’s treatment of animals vile, disgusting and totally unnecessary! Everyone, please sign to help save these poor animals from horrific, disgusting Chinese ‘traditions’!

      • Ditto a million times!!!!! The Chinese absolutely SICKEN me to my core, they’re so brutal a people on the whole (possibly because they’ve been so horribly oppressed by their disgusting government?), including when they immigrate to our countries, bringing their vile mindsets with them and spreading it around like a plague.

        Just LOOK at this poor, dear bear’s EYES! ‘Nuf said!!!

  5. Why are people so cruel and stupid! What is the general population just getting more and more dense?!? Let that bear go free, what kind of brain dead idiots make money off this ignorant torture of a living creature?? The lack of compassion and intelligence of anyone who would do this is incomprehensible.

  6. Poor polar bear and the rest of the arctic animals must be rescued and sent to a good and reputable sanctuary fast before its too late. Animal cruelty must be stopped!
