Target: Bob Candy, Founder and Owner of Tri-State Zoological Park, Maryland
Goal: Shut down the Tri-State Zoological Park and retire all its animals to accredited sanctuaries.
Tri-State Zoological Park is a roadside zoo in Maryland that has shown neglect and disrespect toward its animals. The zoo has a long list of citations from the USDA and even a temporary license suspension. Despite all of these warnings, the zoo has apparently not cleaned up its act.
The zoo has been cited for not providing adequate veterinary care, shelter or enrichment. The USDA also reportedly discovered disgusting cages filled with grime, heaps of trash and broken wires that could cause injury to the animals. It seems clear the zoo is there for profit and not because it cares about its animals.
Sign this petition and demand this disgusting zoo shut its doors and retire all its animals to accredited sanctuaries.
Dear Mr. Candy,
For years, your zoo has been holding animals in deplorable conditions, and I am not the only one who thinks this. The USDA has issued numerous citations, has temporarily withheld your license, and has issued an official warning. Despite all of these warnings, it appears that you have shown no improvement in the care of your animals.
The animals’ cages are reportedly filled with grime, dirty water and heaps of trash. Some of the cages apparently even have broken wire which could cause serious harm to the animals living in the enclosures. In addition, you have not provided adequate veterinary care, shelter or enrichment to your animals.
It is time these animals are brought to an accredited sanctuary. At a sanctuary they can thrive, run free, and play with friends. If you truly care about these animals, then you already know the right thing to do.
[Your Name Here]
