Ride for the bears

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho- Motorcyclists against "The Cruel Treatment Of Animals" gathered in Coeur d'Alene today to "Ride For The Bears."  The motorcyclists rode from Coeur d'Alene to Murray, ID to raise money for the, "World Society For The Protection Of Animals" specifically to support the cause against "Bear Baiting."

"Bear Baiting" is one of the worlds most savage blood sports and is usually held at local fairs in Pakistan, where they consider it entertainment.  At the event bears that have had their teeth and claws removed are chained to a post.  Then three or four trained fighting dogs are let loose to attack the defenseless bears.  Most of the fights attract a couple thousand spectators even though it is illegal.

Today's ride raised money to end the, "Bear Baiting" in Pakistan and to help build a new sanctuary for bears there.
