Improve The Welfare Of The Animals At Olympic Game Farm!

My husband & I, being nature & animal lovers/advocates were suggested to check out Olympic Game Farm in Sequim, Washington a few years ago. Although this person had good intentions, we were greatly disappointed in the welfare of the animals in this "sanctuary", as they have described themselves. It was apparent that this place is exploiting animals for profit. From feeding bread while on a drive thru safari, watching a bear & about 3 wolves together, pacing back & forth in their very small enclosures, to an above ground pool they say is an aquarium & a reptile house we hadn't the chance to check out due to that section of the park being closed when we were on our 2nd trip there, just this past year, to take photos of the welfare of these animals.  The drive thru safari is not ony dangerous because there really isn't any employee to keep a watchful eye to make sure people abide by the rules, but the only thing you can feed these wild animals such as zebras, ox, elk, llamas, & yes, even bears is bread. They claim whole wheat bread is good for them. When you're open 7 days a week for 7-9 hours each day, you can imagine how bread is no longer a treat but becomes a staple part of their diet. The bears that are out in the safari did not have much for shelter to protect themselves from the sun or rain. There was no pool or toys to keep them mentally stimulated. Some animals looked dishevled as if they haven't been tended to for a long time. I have written a letter directly to the owner, Robert Beebe, to no surprise without response. To no surprise, the bear & wolves were still in there small enclosures, pacing, after over 3 years since my husband & I last visited. I have tried getting help from PETA, but they too have written letters & are up against weak animal welfare laws. I've contacted Four Paws International, local humane society, a local news station & USDA all either not responding to my requests or telling me they couldn't help me. I'm counting on this petition & the people to be a voice for the voiceless. What I'd like to see this petition do is at the very least give that push to provide all the animals at this farm better shelter, toys to keep them somewhat mentally stimulated, & stop allowing visitors to feed the animals. Also, if they can't provide a much larger habitat for the black bear & wolves then move them to a proper sanctuary. Give the ponies & camel shelter from the heat when allowing for rides & not to overwork them.  As for the reptiles & their so called "aquarium", my husband & I didn't get the chance to check up on the welfare of these animals. We hope that the USDA & local veterinarians would check up on their care & pressure the Beebes & their employees to follow the vets' suggestions & provide them with adequate set ups, but it seems they haven't in the past, according to documents provided to me by PETA (attached in one of my updates). My goal is to give these animals a better life & to raise awareness to stop supporting animal exploitation, slavery and cruelty. Enough is enough!
