Demand Fair Cancel Cruel Sea Lion Show

Sea Lion Diego Delso

Target: Joanne McCarthy, President of Barnstable County Fair

Goal: Don’t allow the cruel sea lion show Sea Lion Splash to perform at a county fair

Sea Lion Splash is a traveling sea lion show that often appears at various fairs and events. The Barnstable County Fair is planning on hosting the company despite the alleged neglect and abuse the sea lions face.

A former employee of Sea Lion Splash claimed that the organization left six sea lions in a single tank without cleaning the water or giving them food for three days. In addition, this employee claimed to have seen the owners of Sea Lion Splash hit the animals with pipes.

Sea Lion Splash has also faced legal action. The company has violated the Animal Welfare Act on numerous occasions and was cited over six times in just one month. These violations include failing to provide proper barriers between the animals and the people, failing to provide adequate veterinary care, and using undersized tanks.

It appears this company lacks responsibility and respect for its animals. Sign this petition and demand the Barnstable County Fair cancel its plans with Sea Lion Splash.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. McCarthy,

The Barnstable County Fair is planning on hosting the company Sea Lion Splash, a traveling animal exhibit that is known for its alleged abuse and neglect toward its animals. A former employee of the company claimed to have seen the owners hitting sea lions with pipes. In addition, the employee stated that Sea Lion Splash left six sea lions in a tank without cleaning the water or giving the animals food for three days.

The company has also been in trouble with the law. Sea Lion Splash has violated the Animal Welfare Act on numerous occasions and has racked up quite a few citations. In one month, Sea Lion Splash was cited over six times. These violations include failing to provide adequate veterinary care, big enough tanks, and proper barriers between the animals and the people.

It appears this company lacks responsibility and respect for its animals. Please cancel your plans with Sea Lion Splash. These animals deserve to be swimming in the open ocean with friends, not forced to put on shows for humans.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
