Two shoddy roadside zoos – Natural Bridge Zoo, VA and Tiger Safari in Tuttle, OK — 3 Comments

  1. Ummmm… how is this different than someone who keeps colonies of feral cats so they can take the kittens away for adoptions and then feel good about keeping cats in harsh outdoor conditions until they die from it, emotionally and financially profiting from taking the kittens. They pat themselves on the back for this behavior. They take great pride in how wonderful and moral they are, and so does everyone else who does it. Where is the outrage over treating your very own cats this way?

      It is completely different. This is why. Feral cats are forced to be where they are due to poor cat ownership standards. They are being cared for by people. The people who care for them did not put them there. These people are helping. They give their time and make no money. The opposite is true, they give their money.

      Roadside zoos have to acquire animals in deals with other unscrupulous people. These animals are traded between them for profit. Roadside zoos foster poor conservation and exploitation of wild animals. They are completely different. If you can’t see that you are stupid or biased or both.

  2. Road side zoos should not exist and I don’t understand why American authorities seem happy to turn a blind eye to the obvious cruelty and suffering caused to the animals.

    The public should be showing their opposition by boycotting these establishments, but sadly there seems to be sufficient visitor numbers to help keep these places going.

    I shudder to think where some of these poor creatures end up when they’re sold and what horrible fates may await them 🙁
