Chips help stamp out bear market

BEARS MADE to dance in North Karnataka are to be fitted with microchips in a bid to restore them to a natural way of life.

According to the Bangalore edition of the Times of India, wild park rangers have so far chipped up 60 sloth bears which are in the custody of Kalandhars, a familial group which has traditionally supervised the bear gigs.

The bears will be returned to their natural habitat, while the Kalandhars are being given schools and craft training centres to make up for the shortfall in their incomes.

The chips are injected into the bears’ necks and include a 15-digit code number. ♥
