Chan Spearheads New Campaign To Save Japan's Fighting Bears

Martial arts action hero JACKIE CHAN is spearheading a new campaign to close all of Japan's barbaric bear-fighting pits.

The RUSH HOUR star jumped to help animal rights activists in the Far East when he learned just how widespread bear baiting was in Japan, and now he's on a crusade to close every cruel bear park.

He says, "I usually fight the bad guys, and I'm fighting against something very, very bad.

"A thousand bears are in pain. This is wrong and I'm challenging the people of Japan to stop the suffering."

I want to thank you for being a kind and careing person. I am so glad that you are helping those poor bears.If there is a international or world society to help stop cruelty to animals, would you please let me know who they are? Or maybe you can inform them about another type of animal cruelty that is going on in that same area of the world. It breaks my heart and hurts to have read about it.They take a Cobra and a Mongoose, place bets and have them fight. Of course the poor cobra gets the worst of it, and later dies. Is there anything someone can do to stop this also? Can anyone show compassion?I am a longtime member of a reptile club. I rescue snakes and other reptiles. I know alot of people do not like snakes, but I try to educate them. (people fear what they don't understand) The bears, the snakes, and the others, these are all God's creatures.People should appreciate them, and show them respect, and care about them.God Bless You for what you are doing.Sincerely,Margarita V.
