Close Jungle Pets and prevent Richard Potter from running or opening another store.

Mr Richard Potter has been involved in the sale and mistreatment of Exotic and domestic pets for years, and is infamous in Northern Ireland and the UK for this. In early 2016 thankfully he was made bankrupt at his store Jungle World in Ballymena. Sadly he has reopened in Cloughmills under the name Jungle Pets.

In 2010 a woman had her fingers bitten off by a Spider Monkey that was under the care and ownership of Mr Potter in his Ballymena Shop and was fined 12,600 euro for Health and Safety Breaches.

In 2014 a Racoon by the name of Rab escaped the store. Likely down to the lack of care and appropriate housing for this animal.

Shockingly in 2010 Richard was subject to a sting operation by the USPCA and PSNI, where he was caught attempting to sell lemurs, a protected species. 

Sadly Mr potter has been allowed to reopen time and time again and this should be stopped. It is clear that he is selling species that have no business being in a pet shop and that he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a pet store. 

Lets get him shut down once again.
