State Fair Must Cancel Cruel Sea Lion Show

Sea Lion Diego Delso

Target: John Yingling, Chair of Board of Directors for Wisconsin State Fair

Goal: Don’t allow the cruel sea lion show Sea Lion Splash to perform at a state fair.

Sea Lion Splash is a traveling sea lion shows that often appears at various fairs and events. The Wisconsin State Fair is planning on hosting the company despite the alleged abuse and neglect the sea lions face.

Sea Lion Splash apparently violated the Animal Welfare Act on numerous occasions and was cited over six times in just one month. These violations include failing to provide proper barriers between the animals and the people, failing to provide adequate veterinary care, and using undersized tanks.

In addition, a former employee of Sea Lion Splash claimed that the company left six sea lions in a single tank without cleaning the tank or giving the animals food for three days. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the employee also claimed to have seen the owners of the company hitting sea lions with pipes.

It appears this company lacks responsibly and respect for its animals. Sign this petition and demand the Wisconsin State Fair cancel its plans with Sea Lion Splash.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Yingling,

The Wisconsin State Fair plans on hosting Sea Lion Splash, a traveling sea lion show that is accused of abuse and neglect. The company has apparently violated the Animal Welfare Act on numerous occasions and was cited over six times in just one month. These violations reportedly include using undersized tanks, not providing adequate veterinary care, and not providing adequate barriers between the people and the animals.

In addition, a former employee of Sea Lion Splash claimed to have seen the owners hit the animals with pipes. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the employee also stated that the company left six sea lions in a single tank without cleaning the tank or giving the animals food for three days.

It appears this company lacks responsibility and respect for its animals. Please consider canceling your plans with this cruel company. These animals deserve to be in a more natural habitat surrounded by friends, not forced to put on shows while imprisoned in tanks.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. cancel the animal acts now.

  2. myrna Burdick says:

    People do not think about anything but themselves -what
    they want. They assume that the animals are taken care of
    because how could this company be in business, why would
    the fair employ their services.

    For most people ignorance is bliss: they don’t have to
    spend their time thinking about unimportant things.

    Yes, I am very cynical because I see it and hear it all of the time.
