Justice for Paralyzed Baboon Allegedly Left to Suffer in a Pool of Blood and Urine

Target: National Council of SPCAs Executive Director, Marcelle Meredith

Goal: Hold zoo staff responsible for allegedly neglecting baboon who suffered until he had to be put down.

A male baboon, named William, reportedly had to be put down after the zoo neglected his health. William was found by the NSPCA in a late state of paralysis. The NSPCA warned that William would have to be examined by a veterinarian, but the staff reportedly neglected the poor creature, causing him to suffer extensively. According to the NSPCA staff, William’s bodily condition was “shocking.” His movement was severely limited and he had to drag his lower body around, they said. The NSPCA inspectors issued a warning requiring the zoo to have the baboon examined by a veterinarian and the report forwarded to them. The zoo allegedly failed to do that, and William’s condition had deteriorated by the next day.

The inspectors said that the baboon had open‚ bleeding wounds and segments of his flesh were visible. William was found in the exact area as the previous day, with the concrete floor around him covered in blood. They also added that the “stench of urine was overpowering and unbearable.” Flies were swarming around the animal. “In my opinion‚ the baboon was in severe distress‚” said Inspector Cassandra McDonald. There is no reason this innocent animal should’ve suffered this badly. William died a senseless, painful death, all because he wasn’t properly cared for at the zoo. Please add your signature to the petition below to demand that William the baboon be given the justice he deserves.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Meredith,

A baboon, named William, reportedly had to be euthanized after being neglected by zoo staff. According to the NSPCA, the baboon’s bodily conditions were shocking when they arrived and warned the zoo that he had to be seen by a vet. They allegedly ignored the poor animal’s needs, and now he’s dead.

We, the undersigned, are calling on you to seek justice for William the baboon who died a senseless, cruel death. Please see to it that zoo staff are held responsible for this alleged case of animal neglect and cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Why didn’t the damned inspectors remove Wm then and there? It’s obvious that the zoo had neglected him and had no intentions of taking him to the vet. All the humans involved failed him.

    People disgust me…no wonder I prefer being in the company of my animals.

  5. Margaret Melnick says:

    I think MANY people linked to this cruel situation should be charged with animal cruelty. Including the inspectors, owners and staff. Charge all of them and move all the animals to a sanctuary where they can get the type of care they require. SHUT DOWN THAT HELL HOLE. BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT.

    God help the poor animals in that city if all the NSPCA inspectors allow abused animals to stay with their abusers.That inspector should be sacked,and never allowed to work with animals again.Close that zoo down and severely punish the morons that worked there.

    I fear for the other animals if they could do this to poor William! May he rest in peace. I pray justice is served, I can’t imagine how he suffered.
