Reservation: Cherokee Bear Zoo, Chief Saunooke Bear Park and Santa's Land. Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued citations to Cherokee Bear Zoo, saying the business endangered the lives of workers by allowing them to come in direct contact with bears.The agency fined the zoo $3,120 after receiving a complaint from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.Employees were "exposed to potential attacks from captive bears" in July and August while cleaning enclosures, hand feeding the animals and attempting to assist the mating process, according to the citations issued to zoo.

zoo's practice of keeping grizzlies in concrete pits violates the Endangered Species Act's prohibition on harming protected animals.In seeking a dismissal, New Balance 574 Women Rose Gold attorneys for the zoo claimed the suit lacked factual and legal basis and contended the elders had no standing, or stake, in the treatment of the zoo's bears.

Instead, they are forced to beg for food from tourists."The suit also contends, "Because of their inadequate environment, the bears exhibit signs of severe psychological distress, including incessant pacing and circling.""We certainly agree with the judge and look forward to proceeding on the merits of the case," said New Balance 420 Herschel Sale
