Free Baloo from a life of suffering
Sign this petition urging the Romanian government to move Baloo to the Libearty Bear Sanctuary immediately.
Baloo is a 23-year-old bear who has spent his entire miserable life behind bars at a ski resort in Romania. Constantly on display in a small cage next to the ski lift, he is poorly cared for and is visibly traumatized. His diet consists of cereal, lemonade and sometimes alcohol. To add to his suffering, he is often poked with sticks by passersby. This is no life for a wild animal. Baloo deserves better.
Since 2005, the Romanian government has banned private individuals from keeping bears, but unfortunately this law is poorly enforced. While the highest court in the ski resort area did issue a final and irrevocable order in April 2021 for Baloo to be moved to a sanctuary, he is still living at the resort.
Act now so together we can pressure the Romanian government to uphold the order and have Baloo moved to Libearty.
Funded by World Animal Protection, Libearty Bear Sanctuary, operated by our partner Millions of Friends Association (AMP), is a safe haven for formerly abused bears where they can live a life of peace and freedom on 69 acres of lush woodland, meadows and ponds.
