Jacques Du Rand started this petition to Ekurhuleni Mayor

Ekurhuleni Municipality is proposing to open a zoo. Zoo's are known to be the worst caretakers of animals. 

According to the Boksburg Advertiser "This was revealed at the latest council meeting at the Germiston Council Chambers.

According to the mayor, Mzwandile Masina, at the recent Mayoral Lekgotla they raised the possibility of establishing a zoo in the metro.

“Our metro is the only city in Gauteng that does not have a zoo. The establishment of the metro zoo will promote entertainment and leisure profile for the benefit of our residents,” Masina said.

The opposition party, however, disagreed.

Reacting to the mayor’s speech, Phillip de Lange (DA) said the metro failed to look after the rabbits at the Benoni Bunny Park, so having a zoo in Ekurhuleni was a bad idea."

Given the state of both Zoos in Pretoria and Johannesburg, this is the worst idea ever and will only lead to more abuse and maltreatment of animals in Gauteng. These animals are neglected and suffer grave living circumstances. They are not meant to live in these conditions and should be relocated to rescue centres. We do NOT need another zoo. 

We have to stop this.
