Praise Government for Shutdown of Cruel Zoo

Target: Phil Huck, Executive Director of Barrow Council

Goal: Praise the Barrow Council for refusing to renew South Lakes Safari Zoo’s license.

South Lakes Safari Zoo is a popular zoo in the U.K. with a dark past. Almost 500 animals have died while in this zoo’s care and inspectors from Captive Animals’ Protection Society (CAPS) saw some disturbing things.

CAPS, government officials and the public have raised concerns about the conditions of the animals imprisoned at South Lakes Safari Zoo. CAPS found an emaciated kangaroo, a lemur with a sore, and a mongoose with missing fur and what seemed like a skin condition. Government officials found that the animals that had died or were dying were from preventable causes like emaciation, hypothermia, and reckless accidents.

Sign this petition and praise the local council for refusing to renew South Lakes Safari Zoo’s license. These animals deserve so much more than the misery and exploitation this zoo is forcing upon them.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Huck,

Recently, the city council decided to not renew South Lakes Safari Zoo’s license. This is great news considering the atrocities that have happened at this zoo.

Government officials, animal protection agencies and the general public have all raised concerns for the welfare of the animals at this zoo. Almost 500 animals have died in the last four years and many of these deaths were preventable. Some of these deaths include emaciation, hypothermia and reckless accidents. For example, a tortoise was electrocuted, a lemur was killed after escaping into the wolf enclosure, and multiple animals were put down simply because the zoo did not have enough room.

Thank you for refusing to renew South Lakes Safari Zoo’s license. The zoo has made it abundantly clear that they lack responsibly and respect for its animals. Hopefully these animals will be brought to sanctuaries where they can happily live out the rest of their days.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. How did 500 animals die and no one I authority saw or was advised if this??? Absolutely appalling!!!!!!!

  2. Thank you for step up and shut down irresponsible careless and heartless operations and forcing these people to earn a real living for themselves. Its probably how they care for children too. Mindless

  3. I AM STUNNED THAT SO MANY ANIMALS HAVE HAD TO DIE BEFORE ANYTHING HAS BEEN DONE, MAKE SURE THESE PEOPLE PAY FOR THEIR CRIMES,SICK EVIL BASTARDS.

    Why would the animals have to suffer so long? Are they just going to start over somewhere else? I don’t understand why this was allowed to go on for so long, only after HUNDREDS of animals died??

  5. Very strange for this to happen in England. I can’t see how it didn’t get reported.

  6. Anne Moeller says:

    Better late than never- I hope that all zoos will follow this act of shutting down-because wild animals are just that-WILD! We can help this by not going to them and stop filling up their wallets!
