Save the animals!

on April 3, 2015

Tabor zoo

 

I was shocked today to learn that a zoo in the Czech Republic – Zoologická zahrada Tábor – Větrovy – which is insolvent, is selling off its animals and threatening to send the ones it can’t sell to the slaughterhouse. As a result, I’ve been emailing animal charities to try to get some help to get the animals into sanctuaries, rather than to be sold off to zoos or private owners, or euthanised. Zoo animals have sad, depressing lives and deserve better than this.

Apart from emailing everyone I can think of I’ve also set up a petition on Change.org, one of the major online petition sites. It would be great to get support to show the zoo’s owners that people care about the animals and want to see them go to a good home. Please could you take a minute to sign the petition and to share it on your social media pages? I would be very grateful.

You can find the petition here

Thanks

Update 23/4/15 – the animals have been saved. The zoo has been bought by Eugene Korec, who is quoted as saying “the first thing I do is that I want to improve the conditions for animals. I always went to rescue animals and I repeat that for me is definitely not business. In the world, there is no zoo that would be profitable”. You can read the full story here. This is good news for the animals who are no longer facing the slaughterhouse. And it looks like their conditions will be improved, which is great. Thanks to everyone who signed and shared the petition and kept the pressure on the zoo’s administrators to keep trying to find an investor.
