Petitioning ZooCheck Canada Rob Laidlaw

ZooCheck Canada must undertake a thorough investigation of this sanctuary: The welfare of the animals at Story Book Farm must be investigated.

This Petition is for people who share a real concern about the monkeys' living conditions at Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary in Sunderland, Ontario, Canada.

We all were amused by the story of Darwin "the Ikea" Monkey's adventurous escape which became an international news story in December 2012. Monkeys are not illegal in Canada and there are monkeys living at zoos, sanctuaries, and with private owners in Ontario. If Darwin had ended up being sent by Toronto Animal Services to live at the Toronto Zoo or some other lovely place, it would not have effected us as much. Being concerned pet owners ourselves, we all checked out the Story Book Farm Primate Sanctuary website and were immediately shocked and saddened by the photos of the monkeys in the small, rusted, dirty cages made out of a mish mash of building materials with no care or thought made into the construction of their enclosures. 24 monkeys in a barn! Please watch the slideshow above and sign if you agree with us and want these innocent monkeys to be relocated to wonderful homes.
