Tell Swiss Zoo, Tierpark Dählhölzli, Stop Killing Healthy Baby Animals

  • By: Nikki Lowe
  • Target: Tierpark Dählhölzli Zoo Management

A Swiss Zoo, the Tierpark Dahlholzli in Bern, has euthanized a healthy bear cub because, it says, this will prevent it from being killed by its father.

There were many other options the zoo could have tried instead, from finding another zoo to take the bear cub to placing him in a separate enclosure. It is disgraceful that zoo authorities simply went ahead and had the baby bear euthanised. Let the zoo know you don't agree with its decision to euthanise a healthy young animal or any other healthy animals.

You can also email the zoo at and on Facebook at Tierpark Dahlholzli. Tell the Tierpark Dahlholzli how angry you are about the decision to kill the bear cub and demand that the zoo's authorities reassess its breeding policies and procedures. There is no reason to kill healthy animals.

Don't go to the zoo!!! Stop the killings NOW!!
