Rescue Hokuto the red panda

0 have signed. Let’s get to 10,000!

Hokuto the red panda was born in Sapporo, Japan, where he spent the first few years of his life in relative freedom, ample food and clean living conditions. He has grown up to be a healthy, cheerful and very sweet red panda.

But he has been recently acquired by the Kofu City Yuki Park zoo in Japan. In his new "home", if we don't help, Hokuto will be trapped in a small, dirty concrete cage for the rest of his life. His happy and carefree existence is over unless we do something.

Although Kofu is a lovely place, its Yuki Park zoo unfortunately is not. This zoo has bad reviews and has been described as "cruel" by visitors in its treatment of animals. They are kept in small dirty cages, undernourished, and have little access to exercise or the outdoors. The animals get sick, depressed, and often die an early death. 

Please help save Hokuto from ending up as a sad, miserable and mistreated prison inmate in this zoo. We need to find him a better home.

You can help. Please sign this petition to have him transferred to a more humane zoo with more appropriate care and facilities for this species - for instance, the Cincinnati zoo or the New Zoo in the United States. A small email signature from you is all that is needed to make all the difference to an innocent life, and save it from being wasted due to human negligence! Also, please share this petition with as many people as possible in Japan, the United States, and the world.
