Los Zoológicos. Cadena perpetua, sin libertad condicional
Aunque supuestamente en los zoológicos se preocupan por los animales, siguen siendo solo lugares donde “ coleccionan” interesantes especies . Los zoológicos le enseñan a la gente que esta bien tener a los animales atrapados, aburridos, solos y lejos de sus hogares naturales.

Por las cuatro horas que uno pasa en el zoológico, ellos pasan cuatro años o catorce o tal vez mas, si no es en el mismo zoológico, en otro, día y noche de verano a invierno. Esto no es conservación y por supuesto que tampoco es educación ni entretenimiento sino tragedia

Cadena perpetua, sin libertad condicional
Los zoológicos varían en tamaño y calidad, desde parques sin jaulas a pequeños lugares de exhibición hechos de concreto y barras de metal. Entre mas grande es el zoológico , es mas grande el numero de variedad de animales que tiene y también mas cuesta mantener a los animales en buenas condiciones. Aunque millones de personas visitan los zoológicos anualmente, la mayoría de ellos operan con perdidas y tienen que encontrar la manera de cortar gastos, lo que muchas veces significa vender animales . La mayoría de las veces la gente que maneja el zoológico se preocupa mas por las ganancias que por el bienestar de los animales. El ex director de el zoológico de Atlanta comento “ En los animales era en lo que menos pensaba y lo ultimo que me preocupaba con todos los problemas que tiene un zoológico.

Propagación, no educación
Los zoológicos dicen educar a la gente y ayudar a preservar especies, pero lo cierto es que están muy lejos de ser cualquiera de las dos cosas, la mayoría de los lugares donde tienen a los animales son pequeñas, solo vemos letreros con poca información, la especie, la familia a la que pertenece y aveces su dieta. La conducta natural del animal jamas se discute ni se observa ya que todas sus necesidades naturales están coartadas. Pájaros a los que se les priva de poder volar libremente grandes distancias, como están acostumbrados, los animales acuáticos por lo general tienen poca agua y muchos otros animales que están acostumbrados a vivir en grandes manadas o grupos de familias son puestos en una jaula solos o con un miembro mas, si tienen suerte. Comportamientos naturales como cazar o escoger una pareja quedan completamente eliminados por regímenes de alimentación y programas de apareamiento. Los animales son aprisionados ,no tienen privacidad y muy poca oportunidad de estimulación mental o física, que da como resultado un comportamiento autodestructivo llamado “zoochosis”. Un estudio mundial que hizo la fundación Born Free, revelo que la zoochosis es encontrada en animales en encierro por todo el mundo. Otro estudio comprobó que los elefantes emplean el 22 porciento de su tiempo en conductas anormales como sacudir su cabeza repetidamente o morder los barrotes de su jaula. Los osos pasan el 30 porciento de su tiempo caminando de un lado a otro de su jaula, esto es señal de estrés. Un santuario que es el hogar de muchos animales rescatados de zoológicos, reporto ver constantes señales de zoochosis en los animales que llegaban de los zoológicos como chimpancés que mordían sus propios cuerpos, el gerente comento “ sus manos estaban irreconocibles por todas las cicatrices en sus tejidos”.

Mas de la mitad de los zoológicos en todo el mundo están en malas condiciones y tratan a los animales deficientemente.

El propósito de los zoológicos es encontrar maneras de procrear y mantener a los animales en cautiverio. Proteger animales en extinción, suena como una noble causa , pero los directivos de los zoológicos por lo general favorecen a los animales exóticos y populares, a los que atraen mucha gente y descuidan a las especies comunes. El científico y director del zoológico “ Bronx” George Schaller dice “ Los zoológicos están contribuyendo a que se los animales en peligro de extinción como los pandas desaparezcan , al estarlos cambiando de un zoológico a otro para exhibición”.

Si lo que se pretende es favorecer su reproducción y bienestar,sería mucho más efectivo evitar su caza,así como la destrucción de sus entornos naturales,mediante medidas drásticas que incidan sobre los grandes capitales implicados.Es necesario defender al resto de los animales del animal humano,cuidar sus espacios vitales para que puedan vivir libres en el sentido más amplio de la palabra;crear reservas donde poder exhibir muestras grotescas de algo tan bello como es la naturaleza no es más que contribuir más aún a su destrucción,asumiendo que es propiedad nuestra, algo que podemos manipular a nuestro capricho.Los zoologicos no son parte de la solución,son parte del problema.

¿Qué pasa cuando crecen?
Los animales bebes en los zoológicos , le llaman la atención a todos, pero que pasa cuando estos bebes crecen? Por lo general los zoológicos, matan o venden estos animales. Cuando venados, tigres, leones y otros animales dejan de atraer visitantes, son vendidos a parques de caza donde los cazadores pagan solo por el privilegio de matar, otras veces los venden por su carne a zoológicos pobres o para experimento de laboratorio.

¿Qué podemos hacer?
Nunca vayas al zoológico si no es únicamente para hacer algo y ayudar a mejorar sus condiciones.
Evita los zoológicos, al no tener gente los cerraran y así se evitara que sigan capturando animales.
Escribe cartas al director del zoológico con tus preguntas y dile lo que creas que no esta bien.
Cuando vayas a un zoológico lleva una hoja de checador de zoológicos ( llámanos para dártela )
Busca alternativas, visita lugares atractivos donde no maltraten animales.
La única manera de salvar especies en peligro de extinción, es conservando sus hábitats y combatiendo las razones por lo que las gente los mata y captura.
Hoy en día contamos con alternativas(documentales,libros,revistas,etc)que nos permiten acercarnos a estas especies y conocerlas de forma mucho más auténtica y desde luego evitándoles un sufrimiento innecesario, que obedece solo a nuestro afán de dominación y posesión de lo que nos rodea,en un intento para superar el miedo que nos produce nuestra propia debilidad.

News du 22 mai 2008 : Most zoos are prisons for innocent animals‏.

Help animals in entertainment

You can help animals in zoos today

1) Speak out against the transfer of animals from zoos to wildlife dealers and ranchers.

http://getactive.peta.org/campaign/dickerson_zoo/xdn753n427xx3tx7?

2) Support Peta's campaign and help and the misery of captive animals.

https://ebiz.isiservices.com/peta-e/peta/donation.asp?section_code=H08Q471S&ask4=--25-35-50-100-o

There's a reason animals in most zoos look so sad. Few zoos can even begin to meet animals' complex needs. Animals in zoos are denied everything that is natural and important to them, and they're confined to enclosures that are infinitely smaller than the open spaces they would inhabit in their real homes in the wild. In 2004, zoologists at Oxford University confirmed what those of us who have paused to consider animals' plights have always known: Animals suffer in captivity. Polar bears, lions, tigers, elephants, cheetahs, and other animals who might roam hundreds of miles if their lives were uninterrupted by humans become neurotic in zoos. Their constant pacing, rocking, and self-mutilation are signs that they are deeply stressed and miserable.

You can help end this suffering with your donation to PETA's campaign to draw attention to the misery of animals in captivity. :

https://ebiz.isiservices.com/peta-e/peta/donation.asp?section_code=H08Q471S&ask4=--25-35-50-100-o

Zoo defenders like to claim that these facilities serve some sort of noble conservation purpose. But the truth is that zoos serve merely to exploit exotic animals to draw visitors to the zoo, which saps funding from genuine preservation and conservation efforts. Zoos only teach people that it's acceptable to confine and deprive animals for the sake of entertainment.

Zoos know that nothing brings in paying visitors faster than newborn animals. But their greed-motivated breeding programs—which often operate under the guise of "species preservation"—lead to the problem of what to do with less crowd-pleasing adult animals. Zoos have solved that by routinely disrupting bonds and loving relationships among adult animals by trading away, lending out, selling off, bartering, and warehousing the animals that they no longer want.

PETA needs your help to expose the disgusting practices that are routine in these animal prisons. It is up to us to make sure that people know the misery that animals suffer in captivity so that people can make informed decisions. By donating online to PETA today, you'll help us put pressure on zoos to become honest sanctuaries or close down. You'll help us educate the ticket-buying public about why people who truly love animals shouldn't patronize zoos.

https://ebiz.isiservices.com/peta-e/peta/donation.asp?section_code=H08Q471S&ask4=--25-35-50-100-o

With your support, PETA will pressure the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) to pull its accreditation from zoos that engage in outright cruelty to animals. We recently discovered that the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Mo., has sold or "donated" a giraffe, a kudu, five kangaroos, and two deer to Buddy Jordan—a notorious animal dealer who sells animals to exotic-animal auctions and breeders, unaccredited zoos, and even hunting ranches.

Babies born at the zoo should not end up as trophies on a hunter's wall. By taking action today, you can help us pressure zoos everywhere to provide a safe environment for the animals entrusted to their care. Please take a moment to do the following:

1. Sign the petition to the AZA and demand that it immediately yank the accreditation of the Dickerson Park Zoo for transferring animals to wildlife dealers and ranchers.

http://getactive.peta.org/campaign/dickerson_zoo/xdn753n427xx3tx7?

2. Help us defend animals forced to endure captivity in zoos by supporting PETA's campaign with a generous online donation today.

https://ebiz.isiservices.com/peta-e/peta/donation.asp?section_code=H08Q471S&ask4=--25-35-50-100-o

Thank you for supporting PETA's efforts to stop animals from being captured or bred for these pitiful prisons.

Very truly yours,



Ingrid E. Newkirk
President

P.S. Elephants in the wild walk up to 30 miles per day. This activity is essential for their health and well-being. But zoogoers probably walk more from the parking lot to the elephant enclosure than these animals walk in a month. This is no way for animals to live. Please support PETA's campaign today and stand up for animals' right to be free. These animals need you.

News du 20 mai 2008 :

Urge Revocation of Dickerson Park Zoo's Accreditation
Documents received by PETA reveal that in 2007, the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Missouri, "donated" a kudu and a kangaroo to Buddy Jordan, a notorious animal dealer who has been featured in numerous media investigative reports, all of which documented that Jordan sold animals to hunting ranches, operators of exotic-animal auctions, exotic-animal breeders and dealers, unaccredited zoos, and pet owners. The zoo also sold two giraffes to Los Jaboncillos Ranch in Texas and transferred three kangaroos and a wallaby to Dianna Tatum, a licensed animal dealer.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) states that it accredits "only those institutions that have achieved rigorous standards for animal care" and has a policy that prohibits accredited zoos from sending animals to auction or to hunting ranches. Clearly, the Dickerson Park Zoo fails on all counts.

Please contact the AZA and ask it to revoke Dickerson Park Zoo's accreditation.

News du 20 mai 2008 :

Every day, animals suffer horribly for people's casual, fleeting entertainment.

Chimpanzees are often beaten so that they'll "act" for TV shows, movies, and commercials. Elephants are hit with steel-tipped bullhooks by trainers in the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Tigers, lions, and other exotic animals are taken away from their mothers just days after birth for public photo sessions in shopping malls. Elephants, bears, and other animals are often confined to deplorable, cramped conditions in zoos that have no resemblance to their natural environment

We must end the abuse, neglect, and disrespect that these animals suffer in order for people to watch silly tricks. PETA is the leading organization advocating for these animals to be treated with the compassion and understanding that they deserve. But we urgently need your help today.

Making a generous, tax-deductible contribution to PETA is the strongest action you can take for the unfortunate animals trapped in the entertainment business. Thank you.

News du 20 mai 2008 :

I was shocked to learn that Dickerson Park Zoo discards animals by sending them to questionable facilities, including an animal dealer whose affiliation with hunting ranches has been well documented. Part of a zoo's responsibility is to provide a safe environment for the animals entrusted to its care for their entire lives. The Dickerson Park Zoo has betrayed the kudu, kangaroos, giraffes, and wallaby sent to animal dealers and a ranch in Texas and should be stripped of its AZA accreditation.

Protesta a favor de los animales del Parque WATERLAND – DIVERLAND

La Federación de Entidades de Protección Animal de Venezuela, FEDEANIMAL, se une a la protesta nacio



Sus instalaciones no son aptas para mantener los animales y sus empresarios no pueden gerenciar un zoológico dado los antecedentes que tienen de crueldad animal.

El ruido que genera un parque de diversiones mecánico y las luces a toda hora vuelven loca a la la fauna.

Los parques zoologicos y acuarios con "shows" son denigrantes, cuando no existe una regulación que ampare los animales.

Hay una denuncia de que 170 animales fueron decomisados por el MinAmb, provenientes de fundos artesanales y colocados en este parque justo en la temporada de vacaciones, para estrenar el NUEVO ZOOLOGICO...

¡Basta de crueldad animal en los Zoologicos!

March 24, 2008

Zoos (global) – Elephants in zoos live anonymous lives. Day after day, the zoo-going public stopselephant for a brief look, unaware of the secret suffering elephants endure. They don’t know that what zoos refer to as ’specimens’ in their ‘collections’ are actually intelligent, self-aware individuals who were once part of tight-knit families that would give their lives to protect one another (and some possibly did). They are equally unaware (and the zoos don’t want them to know) that the elephants may be physically suffering from the ravages of captivity, dosed with drugs to mask their pain, and sometimes forced to endure repeated artificial insemination, a painful procedure that often requires incisions to expand the vulva, making it susceptible to infection… just so zoos can get baby elephants, a big crowd-pleaser. Usually the attempts fail miserably, or the babies die prematurely of diseases they would never get in the wild. Most zoos act as prisons to the animals housed there. According to studies by wildlife welfare experts, around 80% of the animals exhibit stereotypical behaviors, such as pacing, head-bobbing and other types of repetitive movements that show the animal is in distress as a result of confinement and being stared at day in, day out. Zoos cannot adequately house and care for large mammals such as elephants, giraffes and rhinos– only preserves and sanctuaries have the room they require. Not to mention, animals that are captured abroad are torn from family members or herds.

Who’s fighting them: ATAAC, CAPS (Captive Animals Protective Society), the International Elephant Foundation, The Elephant Sanctuary, HSUS, Peta, IDA, Equanimal (Spain), ALV (Aus), Animal Aid.

Today zoos are a relic of a bygone age – a Victorian concept which, as our knowledge of the animal kingdom grows, becomes even less palatable. To most people, it is self evident that keeping a rhinoceros in a small concrete enclosure in central London is hardly appropriate. So zoos claim they are on a greater mission: for conservation, education, research, and entertainment. Zoos now favor terms like wildlife park or even ’sanctuary’. It is a myth to think that all zoo animals have been captive bred. All of the African elephants in UK zoos and most of the Asian have been imported from their country of origin. Wild animals are still captured and supplied to animal collections. In 1998 some 30 infant wild elephants were taken from their mothers in Botswana to be sold to European zoos by an animal dealer. Animal protection groups stepped in to oppose the sale but were unable to prevent seven elephants going to zoos in Switzerland and Germany.

Although zoos may not take as many animals from the wild as they once did, once there, the animals are there for life. In 1996, of 138 Bornean orang-utans in 35 European collections, 38 were wild born, ranging from 7 to 41 years old. And some species such as white tigers, which zoos covet because of their “Ooh and ahh” appeal, are so grossly inbred that 80% don’t even live, and most of the rest have genetic defects and are sold to whoever will buy them. The breeding of white tigers is unethical, but then so is keeping any animal behind bars for life, but many zoos do both. If you happen to see a white tiger in a zoo, ask the keepers uncomfortable questions like where did it come from, why are they still inbreeding them, and how many of his siblings had to die for him to be there. Let them know that you hold no value in inbred animals just becuase it makes them look “special”.

Recent progress: Public knowledge of proper animal care is improving faster than the zoo habitats themselves. Huge strides have been made recently in many western zoos. 18American zoos (including the San Francisco, Philadelphia and Bronx zoos) have opted to transfer their elephants to sanctuaries, admitting that they can not provide adequate habitats for the large creatures. Others, like the Dallas and L.A. zoos, are spending millions of dollars in improvements, but even with that many still cannot adequately provide for the needs of many of the larger animals.

Call For Nominations - Worst Zoos for Elephants In 2009
Do the elephants in your community's zoo constantly sway from side to side? Do the keepers use bullhooks to force them to comply with commands? Is the elephant exhibit at your zoo pitifully small? Are any of the elephants held alone or with only one other elephant?
Does freezing weather force the elephants indoors for the majority of the winter?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, then you should nominate your zoo for IDA’s annual list of the Top Ten Worst Zoos for Elephants!


Queenie Update - Charges Filed, We Must Keep Pressure On USDA
We're thrilled to report that the USDA has filed formal charges against circus trainer Will Davenport <"Maximus Tons of Fun"> for abusive and negligent treatment of the elephants Tina, Jewel and Queenie, and for defying federal officials who attempted to protect the elephants.
Your thousands of calls, emails and faxes led to the removal of Tina and Jewel from the grip of abusive Will Davenport. Now that you have helped lead the USDA to take this enormous step towards rescuing Queenie, we must keep up the pressure so that the USDA finally takes Queenie out of Davenport’s hands and ensures that she is placed in an elephant sanctuary.

World Watch Report Reinforces Message of World Go Vegan Week
World Go Vegan Week is underway, with over 40 events now taking place in at least 10 countries. Events include tabling, leafleting, film screenings, vegan food samplings and potlucks, Halloween parties and more! Events outside the U.S. include Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Canada, Congo, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, and South Africa.
According to the new World Watch report "Livestock and Climate Change" by Robert Goodland and Jeff Anhang, the impact of animal agriculture on climate change been vastly underestimated, comprising over half of all human caused greenhouse gas emissions. Goodland was the lead environmental adviser for 23 years to the World Bank and Anhang is a research officer and environmental specialist for the World Bank. They say the widely-cited 2006 U.N. report estimating that animal agriculture accounts for 18 percent of annual worldwide greenhouse gas emissions grossly underestimates that sector's impact. In fact, they conclude that farmed animals and their byproducts actually account for at least 32.6 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year, or 51 percent of annual worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.
Based on their research, Goodland and Anhang conclude that replacing animal products with soy-based and other alternatives would be the best strategy for reversing climate change. “This approach would have far more rapid effects on GHG emissions and their atmospheric concentrations - and thus on the rate the climate is warming - than actions to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy.” They argue that food producers should mount a major campaign to promote the consumption of plant-based foods, including meat analogs. Please write a letter to the editor of your local paper and ask them to report on the connection between animal agriculture and climate change.

The Cove Stirs Outrage Over Dolphin Hunt In Japan
From the New York Times, October 22: "For years, dolphin hunts off the seaside town of Taiji, which turn coastal waters red with blood each winter, have drawn the ire of Western activists. But few among the Japanese public seemed to care, or even know, about the slaughter."
"That could change with the first public screenings here of “The Cove,” an American documentary that used hidden cameras to film Taiji’s annual dolphin hunts. On Wednesday, Japanese moviegoers got their first glimpse of it at the Tokyo International Film Festival, held here this week." Read more about the Japanese reaction to The Cove here.

Mobilisation pour les conditions désastreuses dans lesquelles vivent les lapins du parc animalier "Pairi daiza" (anciennement "Paradisio")



URL Courte : http://8048.lapetition.be/

Si le parc animalier "Pairi Daiza" (anciemment "Paradisio") base notamment son marketing sur un soit-disant respect
de l'animal, il faut dénoncer les conditions désastreuses dans lesquelles vivent ses lapins.

Constatations en date du 21 août 2010:

-Ces lapins vivent en grand nombre dans un espace réduit, mâles et femelles non-stérilisés confondus.
Ce qui entraînent des bagarres entre les lapins, et des blessures qui en résultent.

-N'étant pas stérilisés, leur nombre prolifère.

-Des lapereaux nouveau-nés livrés à eux-mêmes, accessibles pour les autres lapins de l'enclos. Ces bébés se faisaient piétiner par les autres lapins ; sans parler du risque qu'ils soient tués par les mâles...

-La litière (paille) était insuffisante, sale et infestée de mouches.

-Plusieurs lapins présentaient des blessures ou lésions: fourrure jaunie, oreilles malades, poil décharné, etc.

-A côté d'un des enclos à lapins se trouvent celui des cochons d'inde: l'un d'eux avait une patte cassée.

Le but de cette pétition est de marquer notre dégoût face à cette situation, et surtout d'enjoindre Pairi Daiza
à prendre ses responsabilités. Ces lapins doivent êtres soignés, stérilisés, et certains devraient être placés en association.

Zoo Deliberately Deprives Animals of Food

We do not sell or share the email addresses you provide.685 commentsAnimals at a zoo in India were deliberately deprived of food for two days because of a dispute about payment to the zoo contractor.



The company in charge of running the Siddharth Zoo in Aurangbad, India had not been paid by city officials for the past three months. In protest to the delay the company refused to feed the animals and ordered employees to leave the zoo.



Zoo employees upset by the situation went directly to the mayor’s office to complain. Mayor Anita Ghodele then ordered that immediate payment be made to the zoo contractor.



However, the check was not handed over to the contractor. Instead city employees claimed they could not cut the check “because of technical reasons.”



The mayor then claimed that she personally inspected the zoo and made arrangements to feed all of the animals - but food was not delivered that day or the next. The animals were starved for two full days.


The whole sordid set of circumstances actually appears to be about concerns that the contractor was cheating the city. Officials claimed the company was buying stale meat at a cheap price, but charging the city for the full amount and pocketing the difference.


But instead of accusing the contractor or working on a solution to the problem, they simply stopped paying the company and apparently made no provisions for the well-being of the animals.

Poorva Joshipura, chief officer for PETA India said, “It is against the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 to deprive animals of food. PETA will be urging the Central Zoo Authority and the police to investigate the zoo for illegal activity immediately.”


The Siddharth Zoo was established in 1984. It is home to 22 species of animals. It has a snake park and aviary park and houses two lions, seven white Bengal Tigers and eight Royal Bengal Tigers. It is also home to 34 deer, two elephants and 10 blue bulls.


The zoo was in the news in August when a female tiger was released from her cage and wandered on her own the whole night. She was captured the following day.

Miserable Indoor Zoo in Bangkok Sparks Controversy

I saw this on Care2 and thought you'd like it as well.

Care2 is the largest and most trusted information and action site for people who care to make a difference in their lives and the world.Care2.com send We hate spam. We do not sell or share the email addresses you provide.15 commentsThe indoor Pata Zoo in Bangkok continues to cause controversy among animal advocates in Thailand.

The Pata Zoo occupies the top two floors of a department store on a busy street in Bangok. Inmates of the prison-like structure include a female gorilla named Bua Noi, two emaciated tigers, and a single "dazed-looking" Humboldt penguin, the last surviving member of a group of a dozen penguins. The penguin occupies an air-conditioned room alone.

Because of the structure of the zoo, the conditions of the enclosures, and the dreadful appearance of the animals, it is understandable why there are regular flare-ups of outrage about the Pata Zoo.

For activists in Thailand, one of their biggest concerns along with the wellbeing of the animals, is the danger of fire. A similar zoo existed in Bangkok that caught fire and killed most of the animals which were trapped inside.

Activists' attempts to have the zoo shut down are hindered by the lack of real animal welfare laws in Thailand. The laws on the books are so vague that it's impossible to shut down Pata on legal grounds. As incomprehensible as it is, Pata is a legal zoo with a permit.

People like Roger Lohanan lament the perception among Thais that animals are possessions that can be treated any way the owners choose. Lohanan is the secretary of the Thai Animal Guardian Association.

He says the attitude of the zookeepers is the same as a person who says he loves his fighting cock for being a good fighter. They love their animals for their usefulness but not much else. All this in a country that is predominately Buddhist.

Lohanan is right when he says that the problem is that humans perceive animals as property, inanimate objects not worth moral consideration. We can have strong affections for objects. I love my bicycle; it's a source of exercise, transportation, and few things clear my head and bring me out of a gloomy mood like a long bike ride.

But I don't worry about chaining up my bike, replacing the parts when I feel like it, or neglecting it when the weather's not right for riding.

I don't doubt that the people who walk elephants in the streets or train their dogs to perform in the marketplaces care about the animals, but they care about them the way you care about an object, not a sentient being. I don't doubt that the zookeeper at Pata who keeps a picture of Bua Noi the gorilla in his wallet cares about her. But only as an object.

Even in a culture rooted in the compassionate teachings of Buddhism, the problem of animal exploitation runs rampant.

Groups that advocate for animals in Thailand and across the globe have to work to change the perception of animals away from animals and to sentient beings worthy of moral consideration. Only by eliminating the status of animals as property will we ever make a meaningful change in their welfare.

Zoos cannot exist in a culture that views animals as sentient beings. When we cease to view animals as property, we eliminate animal entertainment at the same time as we eliminate animal consumption. That's the only way that Bua Noi will ever have a real life of her own.

The company in charge of running the Siddharth Zoo in Aurangbad, India had not been paid by city officials for the past three months. In protest to the delay the company refused to feed the animals and ordered employees to leave the zoo.


Zoo employees upset by the situation went directly to the mayor’s office to complain. Mayor Anita Ghodele then ordered that immediate payment be made to the zoo contractor.

However, the check was not handed over to the contractor. Instead city employees claimed they could not cut the check “because of technical reasons.”



The mayor then claimed that she personally inspected the zoo and made arrangements to feed all of the animals - but food was not delivered that day or the next. The animals were starved for two full days.


The whole sordid set of circumstances actually appears to be about concerns that the contractor was cheating the city. Officials claimed the company was buying stale meat at a cheap price, but charging the city for the full amount and pocketing the difference.


But instead of accusing the contractor or working on a solution to the problem, they simply stopped paying the company and apparently made no provisions

I saw this on Care2 and thought you'd like it as well.

Care2 is the largest and most trusted information and action site for people who care to make a difference in their lives and the world.Care2.com send We hate spam. We do not sell or share the email addresses you provide.412 commentsIndonesia's largest zoo is responsible for the deaths of nearly a thousand animals over the past three years, including endangered animals such as a Sumatran tiger, which died last Saturday.

A manager at the zoo reported animals have been dying by the hundreds because of neglect on the part of the zookeepers. The animals have been subjected to overcrowding, lack of food and sunlight, and exposure to easily treatable illnesses.

The neglect results, at least partially, from infighting between zoo officials over who is in charge. Their bickering was evidently more important to them than caring for the animals and as a result, the zoo reported 362 animal deaths in 2008, and 327 in 2009.

Between being responsible for the deaths of endangered species, depriving animals of food, and keeping them cramped in cages not updated or renovated since 1990, the Surabaya zoo exemplifies what is the worst about the animal entertainment industry.

But please don't think the Surabaya zoo is just a "bad" zoo and there are other "good" zoos out there. It is easy to look at a zoo in Indonesia and assume we have better conditions and that we must treat our animals so much better. A cage is a cage and animals die in American zoos every day. No animal is ever happy, content, or fulfilled living in a zoo.

Spokespeople for zoos, circuses and other animal entertainment companies always assure the public they have their animals' best interests in mind when they make decisions. But the reality of that statement is easily seen following a situation like this one in Indonesia. The truth is, whenever there is another concern, the animals are the first thing to be ignored.

The answer to problems like this isn't a better zoo. It isn't a bigger cage, or better food. It isn't more attentive staff or more funding. The ultimate answer to problems like this is the end of animal entertainment. Animals do not exist for our amusement any more than they exist for our consumption. The only solution is to close all zoos and circuses...for good.

¿LO SABÍAS? | El sufrimiento de los delfines en los Zoo´s
····························································································

¿Sabías que España es el país europeo con mayor número de delfinarios y cetáceos en cautividad? Aunque debido a la alta mortalidad la cifra es fluctuante, en España hay aproximadamente 90 delfines, 2 ballenas beluga y 6 orcas en cautiverio.
Todos menos uno de los delfines del zoo de Madrid son capturados de la naturaleza.
De tres delfines que han nacido en el Zoo de Madrid, 2 han muerto.
¿Sabías que por cada delfín que sobrevive a un delfinario muchos mueren en su intento de adaptación? ¿Sabías que muchos caen en depresiones y en ocasiones se les suministra tranquilizantes y fármacos para reducir la agresividad y el estrés que les provoca el cautiverio? Muchos no lo saben y por ello en AnimaNaturalis hemos decidido unirnos a SOSdelfines, porque creemos que es muy importante dar a conocer el sufrimiento de delfines y orcas en cautividad.
Te esperamos,

Muere "Simba" el león en cautiverio del zoológico de Barquisimeto
Venezuela . Publicado el lunes 22 de abril del 2013.

¡Actúa ya y haz saber al parque zoológico Bararida que estás en contra de traer nuevos leones al cautiverio! AnimaNaturalis

Barquisimeto, Venezuela. El pasado 15 de abril de 2013 falleció el león africano (Panthera leo), llamado Simba, un ejemplar de aproximadamente 13 años de edad que llega a la colección animal del parque zoológico Bararida por medio de un intercambio en el año 2009 con el zoológico Metropolitano del Zulia.

Se estima que Simba nació en el año 2000, y fue decomisado por efectivos de la Guardia Nacional Bolivariana (GNB) en una granja del estado Zulia que se dedicaban a la cría y reproducción ilegal de ésta especie, dando como resultado una mala formación genética por cruces de consanguinidad.

Las características de este cruce, se denotaban en Simba, su melena no era frondosa, falta de la borla en la cola, problemas visuales y conducta pasiva. De hecho quienes le conocieron lo describien como un animal completamente tranquilo que siempre se le veía acostado en el mismo lugar de su exhibidor y por ser de hábitos nocturnos dormía la mayoría del día.

Según fuentes noticiosas del estado Lara se ha conocido la intención del parque de adquirir varios leones para reemplazar Simba

La vida en cautividad es un verdadero infierno para los leones. En la naturaleza, los leones viven en grupos grandes y deambulan por territorios tan grandes como 50 km cuadrados. En cautiverio, se han mantenido sólo en pequeños recintos. Ellos se deprimen su salud se deteriora, y con frecuencia mueren en el dolor. La vida y muerte de Simba no puede repetirse con otros animales.

Toma Acción
Escribe al Parque Zoológico Bararida en su cuenta twitter @ParqueBararida y hazle saber que estás en contra de traer nuevos leones.
