Re: Abuse of a Tiger
I have just watched a video that was made at your zoo. It shows two of your employees abusing a tiger in the most callous and wanton manner that is totally inconsistent with the duties of zoo keepers.
Your staff have broken this tiger’s spirit and heart. It is tragic to see a proud tiger in such a mentally submissive and broken state. Incidentally, has the tiger been declawed?
If you really must keep tigers in a zoo you have an obligation to care for the animal to a high standard. Personally, I would just shutdown your zoo and rehome the animals at places where they can be treated with some dignity. I would feel fairly confident in saying that such treatment is probably endemic at your zoo and part of your zoo’s culture. Please tell me that I am incorrect.
I would respectfully ask you to consider sacking these zoo keepers or at least reprimand them and then retrain them. You should also consider a complete rethink on how you go about caring for animals at your zoo.
Note: I wish the tiger would tear the heads off these zoo keepers… 😉
