Close Down South Lakes Safari Zoo Dalton In Furness

This petition had 13,975 supporters

During the period between December 2013 - September 2016 there have been 486 deaths of animals in the care of South Lakes Safari Zoo. They include the following:

2 Snow Leopards partially eaten

A Giraffe which upon post mortum was deemed to suffering from poor nutrition

A Jaguar had chewed off his/her paw

A Tortoise electrocuted

A Lemur killed after he/she got into the Wolf enclosure

7 healthy Lion cubs and 5 Baboons euthanised as there was no room to house them

All the above are a few of the instances. South Lakes Zoo also houses vulnerable and endangered species. Surely they cannot be responsible for the care of these animals due to the poor housing and lack of health care.

I urge you not to grant a licence to South Lakes Safari Zoo and for the animals that remain there to be relocated to somewhere they can live out their lives in appropriate living conditions and to receive the care they fully need.
