Target: Director of Yunnan Wild Animal Park

Goal: Punish zoo visitors who allegedly caused two peacocks to die of shock by picking them up and plucking their feathers.

Visitors to the Yunnan Wild Animal Park in China are allegedly responsible for shocking two resident peacocks to death. According to the Peacock Park’s management, the visitors roughly manhandled the birds after luring them with food. They reportedly picked them up to take pictures with, holding them tightly and even plucked feathers off them to take home as souvenirs.

While zoo officials have expressed anger at this cruel mistreatment of their resident birds, this incident goes to show that animals are not safe in captivity. Keeping them in zoos where they do not belong gives people the mistaken impression that these sentient beings are there merely for humans’ enjoyment.

Sign this petition demanding the people allegedly responsible for killing the two peacocks are investigated and adequately punished.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director,

Two peacocks recently died after reportedly being manhandled by visitors at the Yunnan Wild Animal Park. The birds were allegedly lured with food before being roughly picked up and held tightly for pictures to be taken with them. Visitors even allegedly plucked out their feathers. This cruel mistreatment led to the two frightened peacocks dying of shock.

Moreover, this incident proves that animals do not belong in zoos. There, they are seen as mere objects of entertainment, present for visitors’ enjoyment, rather than the sentient beings they are.

I urge you to ensure that the people allegedly responsible for these peacocks’ death are found and convicted for their cruel actions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. What is wrong with the Chinese? Ignorant animal abusers that cause horrific senseless pain and death to millions upon millions of innocent animals from the cruel slaughter of dogs for the dog-meat festival, the cruel death of dogs in the dog-fighting festivals, the shock and death of angora rabbits by the ripping out of their hair from live angora rabbits for the clothing industry, and the horrors of bear-bile farming for the use in useless Chinese medicine. And now this and the list goes on . . .

  2. justice for these animals killed now. keep them contained from the public.
