Animals Are Dying At The Baton Rouge Zoo

This petition had 1,011 supporters

Recently, three animals (one baby giraffe, an adult giraffe, and a monkey) at the Baton Rouge Zoo have died within days of each other.  The local community surrounding the zoo (North Baton Rouge) has been asking for upgrades to zoo facilities and better care of animals for years.  Instead of caring for the animals and providing the necessary upkeep of the zoo, the local government, Zoo's Board of Directors (BREC) and the Zoo's Director (Phil Frost), have neglected to provide an atmosphere for animals and visitors that is appealing and livable. By signing this petition, we are charging the Mayor of Baton Rouge and the zoo's board of directors to hire a new zoo Director and invest dollars into the zoo's maintenance and infrastructure, and keep the zoo in its current location (no tax payer dollars spent on relocation).
