Outlaw Bear Baiting in South Carolina!
- Posted to End Bear Baiting
To: Nikki Haley, South Carolina Governor and the South Carolina House Judiciary Committee
Defenseless bears have no rights and are attacked for the cruel pleasure of spectators. Bear baiting needs to be stopped. We ask that South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley outlaw and criminalize bear baiting in the state to put an end to this practice.

Bear baiting (also called bear baying) pits a declawed and defanged bear which is chained to a stake against hunting dogs that bark and bite at it while hundreds of people watch. Spectators consider this event entertainment and hunters consider this as a training regimen for their animals. As countries around the world ban events such as bullfighting and cockfighting, Pakistan and South Carolina (USA), are two remaining places that haven't criminalized the practice. Sign the petition today to help put an end to this brutal "bloodsport".

Thank you for signing the petition. We've hit almost 120K signatures. We need more so we can get the attention of South Carolinian legislatures and leaders, including the governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley. For now, ponder this question: What if Winnie the Pooh lived in South Carolina?
