Target: Mrs. Elizabeth Glibbery, Manager of Toronto Animal Services
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the patron who brought a lion cub into a nightclub to take selfies.
A patron allegedly brought a lion cub into a nightclub and used him to take selfies. The cub was reportedly rented from a zoo that is already facing animal cruelty charges. Demand the maximum penalty in this case.
The Instagram page for Lavelle, a nightclub in Toronto, was flooded with photos of patrons holding and playing with a lion cub. The club claims it was not involved in the lion cub’s appearance and removed the patron from its premises. The patron allegedly obtained the cub from the Bowmanville zoo, a zoo known for its reported mistreatment of animals.
Using a wild animal for social purposes is cruel and illegal. Toronto Animal Services is investigating this incident. Sign below and demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear Mrs. Glibbery,
A lion cub was brought into a Toronto nightclub and used as a prop for selfies. A patron reportedly rented the cub from a zoo. We demand that you recommend the maximum penalty in this case.
Many recognized the lion cub by his collar. He appears to be one of four lion cubs born at the Bowmanville zoo, a zoo currently facing charges of animal cruelty. The zoo advertises “lion cub encounters” and has rented its animals out to the public in the past, according to reports.
This lion cub is still very young and needs to be with his mother. Passing him around a nightclub is dangerous to both the cub and its patrons. We demand that you recommend the maximum penalty in this case.
