The Ohio Dangerous Wild Animal Act protects wild animals like tigers, bears, and lions from being kept in captivity. But some people still think it is okay to break this law. While the owners make a profit from their suffering, these poor animals are kept in small, filthy, and disease-infested cages in roadside zoos. The most common creatures found in these kinds of establishments are bears.
Thankfully, the Ohio Department of Agriculture managed to rescue 13 bears from backyard cages and roadside zoos. Some of these bears were underweight, some were obese, and some suffered from intestinal parasites or broken teeth. PETA joined hands with The Wild Animal Sanctuary in order to transport them to their Colorado sanctuary. After they adapt, they will all be released into vast naturalistic habitats where they’ll finally have the chance to live like real bears for the first time ever.
