Hundreds March Through Central London With Message to 'Spare the Bears'


Hundreds marched through central London – some dressed as bears and others carrying teddy bears – to speak up for the beautiful bears cruelly killed for The Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps and to send a clear message to the Ministry of Defence (MoD) that it's time to relegate bearskin caps to the history books.

Beginning at Westminster Bridge and finishing at Marble Arch, participants covered a grand total of 5 kilometres, with beloved twitcher Bill Oddie and actor Peter Egan leading the march.

Thanks to the many compassionate supporters who joined us on Saturday, 14 July. You can find more photos of the march on our Facebook page.

The bears desperately need us to send a message, loud and clear, that it's time for the MoD to go fur-free. Please sign the petition.
