Success: Lonely Chimp at Roadside Zoo Finally Retired to Sanctuary

Chimp kleinAlexis

Target: Angela Enders, Zookeeper at the Mobile Zoo

Goal: Thank the zoo for finally retiring their lone chimpanzee to an accredited sanctuary.

The Mobile Zoo in Wilmer, Alabama, has finally released its lone chimpanzee Joe to an accredited sanctuary. Joe has spent the last 16 years alone at this roadside zoo. A petition on ForceChange even demanded that Joe be moved to a sanctuary. Thankfully his days at the zoo are over, and Joe is now thriving at Save the Chimps in Florida.

Chimpanzees are highly sociable animals that travel many miles a day in the wild. Joe was denied these simple pleasures for much too long. Thankfully, Joe can now live out the rest of his days happily among friends.

Sign this petition to thank the owner of the Mobile Zoo for finally giving Joe the life he deserves.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Enders,

Joe the chimpanzee has been held at your zoo for the past 16 years. For many of those years he was all alone in a small cage.

Chimpanzees are highly social, intelligent animals that travel miles everyday in the wild. Thankfully, Joe is now at the Save the Chimps sanctuary in Florida where he is thriving. Everyday, Joe gets to interact with other chimpanzees, climb trees and soak in sunshine.

Thank you for giving Joe the life he deserves. It is inspiring to see how well Joe is adjusting to his new life.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    All governments should wake up and BAN those ABUSEMENT corner street “zoos/mobile zoos/circuses and the likes.

    People at large know that animals belong in their natural habitat. WHY IS IT THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE A PLATFORM TO BAN THOSE “FACILITIES” DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT???????????????? OR ARE THEY PLAYING DUMB?????????????
