NO ACTION TAKEN (YET) BY THE SABAH WILDLIFE DEPARTMENT. Is the ‘owner’ of these bears above the law?

The Minister ultimately responsible for Sabah’s wildlife law enforcement – or absence of. He gets to choose whether these ILLEGALLY HELD bears are confiscated from their horrifically cruel lives, or, will the ‘owner’ will be permitted to break the law?  The minister  will be held publicly accountable, daily, – until the bears are confiscated and handed over to the nearby sun bear rescue centre. That’s only fair, isn’t it?

Meanwhile, if you don’t want to see cruelty to wild animals, it is best to stay away from Sabah.
