My Bear Plea and Bookanista Thursday

Peta photo
Today is Bookanista Thursday but I want to share something first.

My first book Untraceable touches on the inhumane bear pits in North Carolina where bears are held in cement bunkers and treated horribly.

This month is a huge month because they are voting on whether to close them or not.

If you read the book or are interested in speaking out. You can write an email to the city council for the meeting on March 19th.

Here are the email addy's and sample letter

Here is the agenda for the meeting in March.

Here is my petition to stop it and here is another larger petition going on as well.

And lastly, here's a great story about a 6 year old who won the PETA kids award for helping these bear pits.


Now for the Bookanista Links this week:

I signed the big petition (yours was closed). I can't believe this is still going on! Thanks for the heads up.

I read Untraceable and the bear pits sounds horrible. Best of luck in the petition helping close them down.

So hard to believe people can be this cruel. Good for you for helping spread the awareness!
