Guest: Katrick Satyanarayn, Co-Founder and CEO, Wildlife SOS  For centuries, dancing bears were a fixture in the streets of India. A V-shaped stripe of white fur stood out from the shaggy black fur on their chests and made it look like they’d dressed up for the occasion. They danced on their hind legs to entertain passersby and raise money for their owners. That’s written in the past tense, because there are no more dancing bears on the streets of India today, thanks to the efforts of a nonprofit called Wildlife SOS.
