FedEx 'Bear Force One' Crew Earns PETA Award for Flying
Roadside Zoo Bear to Sanctuary
Tenn. -- After years of suffering alone in a barren concrete cage at a roadside
zoo in North Carolina, Ben, a black grizzly–bear hybrid, is now roaming free in
a California natural habitat animal sanctuary.
to the generosity of FedEx Express, Ben was flown
cross-country after a judge ordered that he be released from the roadside zoo
earlier this month. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) will
present FedEx with a framed certificate of
appreciation that features a photograph of Ben in his new home at the
Performing Animal Welfare Society's (PAWS) ARK 2000 sanctuary, along with lots
of vegan cookies.
42-person FedEx team dubbed the flight "Bear Force One." During his
flight, Ben enjoyed temperature-controlled ground and air transportation for
maximum comfort and safety. The FedEx team, along with an experienced
veterinarian and representatives from PAWS and PETA, stayed with Ben every
second of his journey. Ben remained calm and alert throughout his voyage and
even enjoyed snacking on treats donated by FedEx, which included fresh peaches,
grapes, melons, and special food with high-moisture content.
"FedEx stepped in and helped give Ben a new life," says PETA Foundation Director of
Captive Animal Law Enforcement Delcianna Winders. "Thanks
to 'Bear Force One,' Ben enjoyed a stress-free trip across the country—exactly
what he needed after years of neglect."
