Bears at Grandview Aquarium

Reports suggest Pizza bear is being moved from Grandview Mall in Guangzhou to an ocean park within China.

It follows widespread calls for her release from the shopping mall facility. Animals Asia had met with Grandview bosses on two occasions. They were able to offer advice on how best to lessen the stress faced by Pizza while also advocating that facilities were inadequate.

Animals Asia welcomes the news that Pizza will be moved from Grandview Mall but concern remains over the facilities at her new location and what her future holds.

However, the fact that animal lovers were able to make their voice heard on this issue reflects a growing concern for animals within China.

Animals Asia has long worked to promote the plight of captive animals kept in poor conditions and will continue to work for all animals facing cruelty.
