For over 20 years, Tootie the chimpanzee has been kept in an enclosure all by himself at Stump Hill Farm in Massillon, Ohio. Please sign this petition to demand his release to a sanctuary where he can live out the rest of his life in freedom surrounded by other chimps.
Stump Hill Farm a roadside zoo that has been accused of abuse and has run into trouble with the USDA multiple times. The USDA has reported at various times that the zoo has failed to provide proper veterinary care and proper enclosures with enough space and water for the animals. The zoo also rents out animals to local sports teams to use as a mascot and to local businesses for commercials. This is not a place where Tootie will get the care he needs and deserves.
Chimpanzees are social creatures. In the wild, they live in large groups and create strong bonds with their families. Leaving Tootie in an enclosure all by himself is just cruel. He should be in a place where he can be properly integrated into a family of other chimps. Stump Hill Farm is not that place.
Tootie deserves to be at a sanctuary, where he belongs. Please sign this petition to help us save Tootie!
We are demanding you to release Tootie to a sanctuary. It is wrong to deny Tootie of freedom and proper care. Tootie belongs at a sanctuary where he can enjoy the company of other chimpanzees, proper care, and a good life. Tootie is more than just an attraction, he is a living creature and deserves to be treated like one.
