Target: Siti Nurbaya Bakar, Minister of Environment and Forestry of Indonesia
Goal: Shut down zoo where animals allegedly starve and are forced to eat their own feces.
The Bandung Zoo in Indonesia has allegedly been neglecting its animals. The animal welfare group, Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group, has been monitoring the zoo for years and has told it to improve the treatment of its animals. Unfortunately, the zoo has ignored these requests.
The bears at the zoo are apparently so emaciated that their ribs are clearly visible. They beg visitors for food and have allegedly even eaten their own feces due to their hunger. A giraffe at the zoo suddenly died and during the autopsy, forty pounds of plastic was found in his stomach. As if these incidents are not horrible enough, an endangered elephant recently passed away after visitors claimed to have seen her visibly weeping, sick and shackled to the ground.
Sign this petition and demand this zoo is shut down immediately. It is a true house of horrors for the animals imprisoned there.
Dear Ms. Bakar,
The Bandung Zoo has allegedly been neglected its animals for years and many are concerned. The animal welfare group, Scorpion Wildlife Trade Monitoring Group, has been monitoring the zoo and what it is reporting is disturbing.
Several animals have died while in the Bandung Zoo’s care and these deaths seemingly could have been avoided. A giraffe at the zoo died suddenly and forty pounds of plastic was found in his stomach. An endangered elephant recently passed after visitors claimed to have seen her visibly weeping, sick and shackled to the ground. The bears at the zoo are so emaciated that their ribs are clearly visible. They beg for food and have allegedly become so desperate they eat their own feces. It is only a matter of time before they will die as well.
Please consider shutting down this cruel zoo. No animal should be forced into this life for mere human entertainment. It is time to give these animals the life the deserve and bring them to a sanctuary.
[Your Name Here]
