Close Down “Tiger King” Zoo For Neglect and Abuse

Target: Sonny Perdue, United States Secretary of Agriculture

Goal: Permanently revoke the license of Jeffrey Lowe of “Tiger King” fame.

The Greater Wynwood Exotic Animal Park, as popularized in the Netflix series “Tiger King,” has been temporarily closed to the public following the suspension of its federal animal exhibition license. The USDA investigated the zoo and suspended the license, which is currently owned by Jeffrey Lowe, who took over the zoo after the previous owner, Joseph Maldonado-Passage, also known as Joe Exotic. The closure of the zoo was announced via the park’s Facebook page and was “effective immediately.” The post also said that the “park will, at least for the foreseeable future, be a private film set for Tiger King related television content for cable and streaming services.”

The suspension of the license came after USDA investigations revealed multiple animal welfare violations, including a handful of repeat infringements. Simply put, the animals housed at The Greater Wynwood Exotic Animal Park face neglect and abuse. One example being that the zoo only had a broken refrigerator truck to store animal food. The USDA report says, “The inspectors asked for the invoices for the repairs and were handed an invoice for a tractor repair.”

Brittany Peet of animal welfare group PETA said that a permanent revocation of Lowe’s license is the next logical step. Sign this petition to urge the USDA to permanently revoke Jeffrey Lowe’s license.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Perdue,

The nation watched as majestic, exotic animals like tigers, lions, and crocodiles were seemingly neglected and tortured on Netflix’s “Tiger King.” The privately-owned zoo featured in the series has continued to run and has remained open to the public until a recent USDA investigation confirmed animal welfare violations. The Greater Wynwood Exotic Animal Park is now temporarily closed to visitors as a result of a suspension of its federal animal exhibition license.

The animals at this facility are being abused. They are being taken advantage of by people like Jeffrey Lowe who are only interested in making money and continuing to film Netflix content that depends on his disorganization and mayhem to be successful.

I urge you to take the welfare of the animals very seriously and permanently revoke Lowe’s license to run this zoo.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
