Shut Down Pymatuning Deer Park

This petition had 1,420 supporters

Pymatuning Deer Park has no business keeping animals such as zebras, bears, exotic birds & monkeys, lions, mountain lions, tigers, leopards/jaguars, and bobcats. This isn't the first time they have been reported but somehow they are able to reopen. They need to be stopped and these animals need to be surrendered.

The enclosures for these animals are tiny, covered in filth, and with no room for the animal to run. They are surrounded by fence and barbed wire. The animals are all visibly anxious and stressed out by their environments. I witnessed some workers taunting their jaguar/leopard with a piece of meat, hanging it above her face as she growled and lunged at them while they laughed. The bears had dirty water and were covered in flies and waste. The lions and tiger had nothing in their enclosures to stimulate them. People throw the pellets they are given at the entrance at these big cats, who are overweight from the improper diet and have absolutely no muscle tone. This is abuse and this place needs to be shut down permanently unless a real change is implemented.
