Target: Tom Vilsack, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary
Goal: Shut down the neglectful roadside zoo Summer Wind Farms.
Summer Wind Farms is a Michigan roadside zoo that has only shown neglect and abuse toward its animals. The zoo has been cited numerous times by the USDA for various violations against the Animal Welfare Act. Instead of cleaning up its act, Summer Wind Farms has continued to treat its animals like objects rather than living beings.
The zoo has been cited for a range of atrocities. The USDA has cited the zoo for not providing adequate veterinary care or clean water, locking a 25-week-old tiger in a small cage in a basement, failing to clean the premises, and for failed euthanasia attempts that were not performed by a veterinarian.
The atrocities at this establishment seem to never end and they won’t end unless the zoo is shut down. Sign this petition and demand the USDA shut down Summer Wind Farms.
Dear Mr. Vilsack,
A roadside zoo in Michigan named Summer Wind Farms has show only abuse and neglect toward the animals at its facility. You may recognize the name due to the outstanding number of citations the USDA has already filed against this zoo.
The USDA has already cited Summer Wind Farms for failing to provide adequate veterinary care or clean water, for locking a 25-week-old tiger in a small cage in a basement, for not cleaning the premises, and for failed euthanasia attempts that were not performed by a properly trained veterinarian. The citations continue to stack up and the zoo shows no signs of cleaning up its act.
Please shut down Summer Wind Farms. The zoo is clearly not taking your citations seriously and only continues to abuse and neglect its animals. These animals deserve so much better.
