Simon Hutton of Free the Bears Fund has died
- Simon Hutton, Cambodia project director of Free the Bears
Fund died on June 24th after being struck by an automobile in Phnom
Penh, Cambodia on June 22nd.
His mother, Mary Hutton, founder of Free the Bears Fund of
Australia, was enroute to Singapore for the fourth Asia for Animals
conference, but instead had to fly on to Phnom Penh, where she was
with Simon in the hospital at the end.
Recalled Mary, "Simon was responsible for getting Free The
Bears Fund started. One evening in 1993 he yelled 'Mum you have to
see this on TV.' I saw a little bear in a cage banging his head
against a bar of a cage and that was the first I knew of bears in
bile farms - it went from there.
"We never knew there could be so much pain - we loved him so
much and will miss him beyond words," Mary writes.
