Colorado Wildlife Sanctuary Wants Meatball, the Bear

A Colorado wildlife sanctuary has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Meatball the Bear. The bear is named Meatball, because he likes to eat them.

The 5-year-old, 400-pound black bear was taken out of a swimming pool, in La Canada Flintridge, California on Aug. 29th, and put in a 15-by-20-foot cage at a facility in Alpine, California. Meatball was expected to be transferred from the enclosure in Alpine to the Colorado sanctuary within days, but wildlife officials put the plans on hold. California wildlife officials Tuesday confirmed that Meatball would not be going to Colorado, because of a Colorado statute that says “no wildlife taken from the wild shall be possessed by any wildlife sanctuary. The operators of the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado filed suit, saying the Colorado law contradicts the very definition of “sanctuary” as being a place of refuge that “provides care for abused, neglected, unwanted, impounded, abandoned, orphaned, or displaced wildlife for their lifetime.
