Don’t Add Animals to Zoo Imprisoning “World’s Saddest Polar Bear”

Target: Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau in Guangzhou, China

Goal: Save animals from cruel imprisonment by cancelling the Grandview Mall’s expansion plans.

A Chinese shopping mall, already notorious for hosting the “world’s saddest polar bear,” has announced plans to expand their zoo to include more animals.

The Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium gained international scorn after footage emerged of a polar bear named Pizza. Dubbed “the world’s saddest polar bear,” Pizza reportedly lives in cramped conditions that are entirely unsuitable. In addition to the polar bear, the mall also houses beluga whales, arctic foxes, walrus calves, and more, all believed to be living in unnatural and unhealthy exhibits.

Instead of bowing to pressure, officials have expressed interest in acquiring other species such as pandas and white tigers. The planned expansion would see the creation of an indoor zoo, 5,900 square meters in size. “I don’t believe there would be enough space or that they would be able to provide adequately for those animals,” said Dave Neals, Welfare Director of Animals Asia, an ecological charity that has already tried to free the imprisoned animals.

The Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium has made it clear that they have no respect for the animals that they so cruelly keep in captivity. Sign the petition below to save further animals from being trapped in this inhumane place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau,

I am writing to express my grave concern about the recently announced plans to expand the Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium. The location has already been roundly criticized for its awful treatment of Pizza the polar bear, but rather than accept this international condemnation and provide a better home for this poor animal, officials have decided to imprison more animals in an unnatural and entirely unsuitable zoo.

These animals deserve open space and natural habitats, neither of which the planned expansion can provide. To imprison more animals would be to sentence them to a life of pain, sadness, and discomfort. I urge you to immediately intervene and cancel any plans for expansion.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Our society is not well when it comes to treatment of animals OR one another!

    • NO COMPARISON with China and indeed most of Asia, where dogs and cats are not only eaten daily, but TORTURED as they die, due to the folk belief that it makes the meat taste better.

      See: http://www.pravdareport.com/society/anomal/06-05-2016/134361-yulin_slaughter_dogs-0/

      • Some people have difficulty separating killing animals for food (no time to address choice of animal here) from deliberate cruel torturing before they kill them, in this case putting personal bodily satisfaction and scientifically unfounded gratification, personal pleasure of taste-buds, above concern for the pain and feeling of any living thing other than human. The epitome of diseased and corrupted self-centeredness, egocentric. As this is ingrained in the culture, can we expect anybody to care about Grandview Mall wanting to expand though not having enough space and not being able to provide adequately for the animals???

  3. I would be all for them UPGRADING this “zoo”, if they must have it, but to simply expand it, and add more animals, with these types of horrible conditions….NO!

  4. What disgusting evil people the Chinese are, everything they do involves ill treating animals, they are not fit to be classed as human.

    F@&K CHINA !!!!!!! A country with no morals. A country which I wouldn’t visit even if the trip was first class, all expenses paid. While the entire human species needs to evolve when it comes to the rights of animals, Asian countries are by far the worst. It’s no wonder the people from that part of the world are always ill with rare diseases (usually contracted from eating exotic animals). I only wish every animal could be rescued from that horrible country and it’s neighboring countries …..

  8. “The Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium has made it clear that they have no respect for the animals that they so cruelly keep in captivity”. ===> Cut that ego crap and stop being spiteful to the world. Although you are lucky to be born as a human being which is supposedly a more dominant species, you do not have the right to make life a living hell for the rest especially so with animals. The human rebirth is said to be extremely rare. However if one is already living as a human they will continue to be reborn in the human world based on GOOD WORKS and so they will be one again and again as long as they are MORAL & GOOD. Falling below the human realm is dangerous as the odds of one becoming a human again with any great frequency is slim. Protect your loved ones and offsprings so that they do not have to be answerable or suffer BAD KARMA for you. LEARN TO RESPECT & CO-EXIST PEACEFULLY WITH ANIMALS WHO ARE SENTIENT BEINGS THAT BASICALLY MEANT NO HARM TO HUMANS UNLESS they are THREATENED.

  9. It’s China, do we have to say anything more!! They don’t care about animals, they eat companion animals for hell’s sake.
