Success: Abusive Zoo Finally Closes

Tiger hanna_boehm0

Target: Paul Martin, Chief of Police, Durham Regional Police Service

Goal: Thank the police for investigating the abusive zoo owner, which led to the closing of his zoo.

Bowmanville Zoological Park, which is owned by the abusive trainer Michael Hackenberger, is finally closing its doors for good. After PETA released footage of Michael Hackenberger whipping a tiger until he defecated while Hackenberger joyfully stated how satisfying it is to dominate animals in such a way, an investigation into the zoo was performed.

Thankfully, the zoo is now closing down and Hackenberger is facing prosecution. These animals will no longer have to live in fear under the tyrant Hackenberger. The footage of the tiger is incredibly hard to watch and one can only imagine the things that were not caught on tape.

It is thanks to activists and petitions like this one at ForceChange that the atrocious Bowmanville Zoological Park was brought to the attention of the police. Sign this petition and thank the police for taking this matter seriously and for helping the animals imprisoned at this awful zoo.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chief Martin,

Recently, the abusive and neglectful Bowmanville Zoological Park was brought to your attention. The owner and animal trainer, Michael Hackenberger, has been caught on camera abusing his animals on more than one occasion. First, he was caught screaming at a baboon who did not do as he was told quick enough for Hackenberger, and then he was caught whipping a tiger until he defecated in fear.

After these atrocities were brought to your attention, an investigation was held. Thankfully, the Bowmanville Zoological Park is now shutting its doors for good and Hackenberger is facing prosecution.

I want to thank you for taking this matter seriously and for helping the animals imprisoned at Bowmanville Zoological Park. These animals no longer have to live in fear, and it brings much happiness to know that this abuse is finally being put to an end.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
