The terrible cruelty and neglect suffered by caged brown bears in Armenia simply cannot go on. We have rescued 21 bears from their small squalid cages where they were surviving on scraps of food and filthy puddles of water. But 50 more bears are still waiting to be freed from similar sickening conditions.
Gordon is one of the 21 bears we have rescued from this misery.
We found Gordon slumped on a cold hard floor in a tiny, narrow cage with barely room to turn around. He spent the long days lying with his nose pressed through the bars, or gnawing endlessly on them in a desperate attempt to break free.
Gordon must have suffered in silence for days, then weeks, then months, waiting patiently for someone to save him from his misery. And, heartbreakingly, there are still 50 poor bears living like Gordon and waiting for that time to come.
That's why we have to act now to save more suffering bears and we can only do this with your help. We are already preparing to set more bears free. But we can’t do it without you. We urgently need your help to give caged bears like Gordon the freedom they deserve.
Please help us save more caged bears as quickly as possible. Your donation will help maintain the momentum of our Great Bear Rescue campaign, so that we never have to say no when a bear needs our help.
It was nothing short of torture to keep Gordon shut in a tiny cage when his mind and body were craving open spaces and the freedom to roam in the mountains. Right now, across Armenia, 50 more bears are still suffering the same cruelty and neglect - and that's 50 bears too many…
