How this will help

Tweet this message: Nation! @StephenAtHome What do South Carolina & Pakistan have in common: Bear-baiting! http://bit.ly/SaveColBEAR via @causes #SaveColBEAR

Thanks to you, over 100,000 people have signed the petiton http://www.causes.com/stopbearbaiting demanding that South Carolina outlaw and criminalize bear baiting! Bear baiting puts a tethered bear, whose teeth and claws have been removed, against specially trained aggressive dogs -- a heinous and cruel practice.

Taking this pledge and tweeting to Stephen Colbert will help enlist his support to end bear baiting in his home state. Stephen Colbert is executive producer of the award-winning series "The Colbert Report" on Comedy Central and has focused on animal protection issues in the past. In July, Colbert took on Iowa Congressman Steve King for his stance against animal rights when King tried to make the case that dogfighting should be legal. Colbert came to the rescue and made a mockery of King's position on the issue. Let's recruit Colbert's creative genius to stop bear baiting in South Carolina. Send a tweet today!
