Target: Roberta Kirshner, President of Barry R. Kirshner Wildlife Foundation
Goal: Shut down roadside zoo for its cruel and inhumane treatment of their animals.
Allegedly, the USDA found many cases of extreme neglect including not giving the proper veterinary care when needed and leaving animals in 100+ degree weather with no form of relief at a roadside zoo.
The Barry R. Kirshner Wildlife Foundation has a well-seeming name. However, it could not be farther from the truth. Recently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture investigated the roadside zoo and issued the organization $5,000 in fines for numerous infractions that threatened the lives of the animals in its care.
Sign this petition and demand this zoo be shut down and that the animals are sent to accredited sanctuaries.
Dear Ms. Kirshner,
Recently, the U.S. Department of Agriculture investigated your roadside zoo and issued you $5,000 in fines. The neglect these animals faced because of you is disgraceful.
Proper veterinary care was not given to numerous animals and no form of relief was given to animals who were sweltering in 100+ degree weather. These animals deserve so much more than that.
It is clear that this roadside attraction is for profit only and not for the well being of the animals. Please consider shutting down this zoo and moving the animals to accredited sanctuaries.
[Your Name Here]
