Bob Barker Finale

Famous game show host Bob Barker recently took to CNN.com to blog about a community of bears that need our help.

Earlier this year, Barker was contacted by Rep. Bill Young of Florida after he and his family visited a roadside zoo on a trip to Cherokee and witnessed a pack of bears living in deplorable conditions.

Being a good little activist, Barker contacted PETA and asked them to send a staff member to check it out. PETA investigated and found that there are actually three roadside zoos in the area that house close to 30 bears.

Barker reached out to Michell Hicks, principal chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, and asked him to intervene.

Although Chief Hicks has still not made a decision, Barker is hopeful that Hicks will make the compassionate choice. Bob sums his story up like this: 

“Earlier in my career, I hosted a show called Truth or Consequences. I closed the show by saying, ‘… hoping all your consequences are happy ones!’ I hope with all my heart that Chief Hicks and the tribal council will make the consequences for the Cherokee bears happy ones. Until then, my heart and my conscience won’t allow me to do anything but ask people to stay away from Cherokee and voice their support for allowing the bears to retire to a sanctuary.To learn more about how to help these bears, please visit PETA.org.”
