Stop Bear Shows at Clarks Trading Post, Lincoln NH
Clark's Trading Post is a family owned business in Lincoln, NH. A land that is home for Wild Black Bears and many other wonderful yet powerful creatures. Clark's Trading Post has many other business ventures within it's operation including; Bumper Boats, Train Shows, Magic Shows, Circus Acts, Large Gift Shop, Food, Segway Tours and many more. Their largest advertisement capitalizes on their Bear Shows where they train these wild animals to perform like Circus Pets. These bears are used for a short period during the summer to bring in business and are then held in quarters until the following season. Last year, a bear retailiated on one of the trainers. The fate of that bear is unknown, but how is this possible. To me, it's like taking a squirrel or a pigeon, any animal; out of it's natural habitat where others will continue to roam free around them and they will ultimately be domesticated, trapped in this life until 'retirement.' How do human beings have the right to take animals out of the wild, risk their safety, the safety of others, all for the sake of monetary profit. These animals deserve to be in nature and this town is not the kind of town that wants to be commercialized with circus acts and such cruelty to animals. I am asking that if you feel these animals deserve a chance or if you agree that it is wrong to strip these innocent animals of a full life, I ask you to please sign my petition. I will be sending this to several organizations to gain support. Please help save the bears!
