Release Bears Cruelly Trapped in Concrete Pit

Target: Tim Williams, Roswell, New Mexico Parks and Recreation Director

Goal: Retire the two bears at Spring River Park & Zoo to an accredited sanctuary.

Spring River Park & Zoo is a roadside zoo in New Mexico that has confined and allegedly neglected its two bears for much too long. The two bears, Sierra and Ursula, are trapped in a concrete pit with little to no stimulation. The lack of stimulation leads to excessive stress in the bears, and they are often seen pacing back and forth. We must take action now to save these innocent bears.

The bears allegedly live in neglect and filth. Their small pools of water are reportedly riddled with algae and smell terrible. In addition, the concrete pits can lead to many health problems in the bears including arthritis and damage to their sensitive paws.

Sign this petition and demand that Spring River Park & Zoo retire its bears to an accredited sanctuary. It is time these bears experience the happy life they deserve.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Williams,

Spring River Park & Zoo currently holds two bears in a barren concrete pit, and it is time for these animals to be retired to an accredited sanctuary where they can live the life they deserve.

Sierra and Ursula, the two bears at the zoo, are often seen pacing back and forth, a stress indicator, due to the lack of stimulation. Their pools are allegedly filled with algae and give off a horrible smell. In addition, the concrete can cause injury to these animals. The constant contact with the concrete puts extreme pressure on their joints and can damage their sensitive paws.

It is time Sierra and Ursula are brought to a sanctuary where they can feel grass underneath their feet, play with other bear friends and roam freely. The animal rights organization PETA has offered to help with the move at no cost to the city. It is time you accept this generous offer and let Sierra and Ursula finally live the life nature intended.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Please let these bears go to a sanctuary! They don’t deserve to live a life like this, it is truly inhumane.
