Bears Languishing in a Decrepit Concrete Pit in Tennessee Need Your Help!

Take Action:


Two Himalayan black bears who had been confined to a tiny cage in a residential backyard by Three Bears General Store Owner Bill DeLozier in Sevierville, Tenn., have been released into their new homes at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado. But there are five more bears still being held captive in a virtually barren concrete pit at DeLozier’s store, and they need your help. Please help PETA send these bears to a sanctuary, too!

Three Bears General Store owner Bill DeLozier illegally imported the two Himalayan black bears with the intention of breeding them. Thankfully, these two bears will spend the remainder of their days in a vast, naturalistic habitat where they can roam, dig, and hibernate, but the five other bears are still suffering in deplorable conditions at the store. Three Bears has a lengthy history of animal welfare violations, including allowing moldy excrement to accumulate in the bears’ enclosures, failing to provide adequate veterinary care, and failing to provide clean drinking water.

Join PETA in urging Mr. DeLozier to end the exploitation by sending all bears to a sanctuary, where they will get the space and quality care they deserve, and by closing his bear exhibit for good.

Thank you for all you do for animals!
