Help relocate these zoo animals!
Johannesburg zoo,what once was a beautiful place to go with your family to see animals from around the world is now a war zone of pain and suffering.Sign PetitionSign Petition
Zoo's are meant to resemble the natural habitats of the animals that it holds, but this zoo in particular has extremely small enclosures for animals who need an abundance of room to roam, not only are these animals tightly kept but they are not treated with respect, the ground staff do nothing all day and leave the grounds in an appalling manner.
Litter lies everywhere, the children's play area is in an unsafe way, and the animal's enclosures are not being tended to, the water in some enclosures is filthy and in some cases there is no water at all.
Why is it that there are stunning zoo's such Sandiago Zoo and Australia Zoo that make the animal's lives, happiness and comfort their priority and then there is Joburg Zoo that treats it's animals as prisoners?
So please help me, either the zoo is shut down and the animal's are relocated to a suitable environment where they can thrive and feel at home or these animals are going to be left to suffer for the rest of their days.
Can you imagine being imprisoned in a cage just to be looked at and mocked for your suffering? How is that a fair existence?
