The Last Dance - Bear Book
In 2009 International Animal Rescue, along with our partners Wildlife SOS and Free The Bears, ended the 400 year old trade of dancing bears in India.
The Last Dance looks at the barbaric practice of dancing bears and examines how we set about bringing it to an end - the book exposes the terrible suffering the bears endured to make them dance and compelling photos show bears being surrendered and the ropes being cut to set them free. The book also takes you inside the sanctuaries in Agra, Bhopal and Bannerghatta where the bears have been released and now enjoy a peaceful, contented retirement.
Written by IAR Chief Executive Alan Knight OBE and Sean Whyte who together brought you ‘Orangutan Rescue’, this extraordinary book is available while stocks last!
