Behind the bars: bears in captivity

Bear in Zoo Bucharest, Romania

Bears are inquisitive and opportunistic and can suffer particularly badly in captivity.  Bears in zoos and circuses can display many abnormal behaviours, such as bar-biting, swaying from side to side, or even self-mutilation, while dancing bears are forced to perform.  Born Free campaigns to end the confinement and exploitation of bears and all wild animals for ‘entertainment’.
