Target: Director of Yunnan Wild Animal Park

Goal: Punish zoo visitors who allegedly caused two peacocks to die of shock by picking them up and plucking their feathers.

Visitors to the Yunnan Wild Animal Park in China are allegedly responsible for shocking two resident peacocks to death. According to the Peacock Park’s management, the visitors roughly manhandled the birds after luring them with food. They reportedly picked them up to take pictures with, holding them tightly and even plucked feathers off them to take home as souvenirs.

While zoo officials have expressed anger at this cruel mistreatment of their resident birds, this incident goes to show that animals are not safe in captivity. Keeping them in zoos where they do not belong gives people the mistaken impression that these sentient beings are there merely for humans’ enjoyment.

Sign this petition demanding the people allegedly responsible for killing the two peacocks are investigated and adequately punished.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director,

Two peacocks recently died after reportedly being manhandled by visitors at the Yunnan Wild Animal Park. The birds were allegedly lured with food before being roughly picked up and held tightly for pictures to be taken with them. Visitors even allegedly plucked out their feathers. This cruel mistreatment led to the two frightened peacocks dying of shock.

Moreover, this incident proves that animals do not belong in zoos. There, they are seen as mere objects of entertainment, present for visitors’ enjoyment, rather than the sentient beings they are.

I urge you to ensure that the people allegedly responsible for these peacocks’ death are found and convicted for their cruel actions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Director – Zoo visitors should not be allowed to get this close to any animal kept in the zoo. If you are going to hold them captive, at least afford them the protection they deserve. This incident should have never happened. Punish the people responsible for these birds deaths and set an example to others who might be tempted to do the same thing.

  2. If this is a zoo, then where were the employees who were supposed to be watching the visitors? Two innocent, helpless lives taken … and for what (?) …. because some psychopaths wanted to take photos ??? The perpetrators MUST be punished for this heinous crime !!!!!!!!!

  3. WHY WOULD ANYONE DO SOMETHING SO CRUEL AND VILE?? THOSE INVOLVED MUST BE CAUGHT AND SEVERELY PUNISHED. THE ZOO MUST HAVE CAMERAS SO PUT THEIR FACES ON THE NEWS CATCH AND PUNISH THE MONSTERS.

    RIP POOR BIRDS YOU DIDN’T DESERVE TO DIE BECAUSE OF THEIR CRUEL AND SELFISH ACTS.
