I had seen for myself, on my visit to China, the devotion of all the staff in Chengdu
to the rescued bears, and the high standard of care and sensitivity to the needs
of all those special animals. But when I saw "Cages of Shame" my feelings of admiration
rose even higher. The gruelling journey, for both animals and humans, the fear that
some might not survive it and the emergency operation, the gathering exhaustion.
But the unfailing calm and professionalism were inspirational to all of us privileged
to watch the story unfold. Our joy, as an audience, when the convoy reached the sanctuary
was overwhelming. I just want to thank you. We watch from afar but you are never
