"Cages of Shame" Ontario screening

Event Progress

Animals Asia’s Southwestern Ontario Volunteer Group presented a screening of the documentary "Cages of Shame" at the Ojibway Nature Centre (in Windsor, ON near Detroit, MI) on Saturday, June 22, 2013. This compelling film tells the remarkable true story of the rescue of 10 bears from the last bile farm in Shandong Province, China—and the 1,500 mile journey to their new home, Animals Asia’s placid sanctuary in Chengdu. Directed by Martin Guinness and narrated by Emmy Award-winning actor Peter Coyote, "Cages of Shame" presents gripping insight into Animals Asia’s work to put an end to bile farming, and help bears who have formerly lived an excruciating existence being farmed for their bile. The film was followed by a Q&A with Animals Asia’s Southwestern Volunteer Group leader, Colleen Burns.
