Zoo Holding “World’s Saddest Polar Bear” Must Not Imprison More Animals

saddest-polar-bear-in-the-world

Target: Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau in Guangzhou, China

Goal: Save animals from cruel imprisonment by cancelling the Grandview Mall’s expansion plans.

A Chinese shopping mall, already notorious for hosting the “world’s saddest polar bear,” has announced plans to expand their zoo to include more animals.

The Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium gained international scorn after footage emerged of a polar bear named Pizza. Dubbed “the world’s saddest polar bear,” Pizza lives in cramped conditions that are entirely unsuitable. In addition to the polar bear, the mall also houses beluga whales, arctic foxes, walrus calves, and more, all believed to be living in unnatural and unhealthy exhibits.

Instead of bowing to pressure, officials have expressed interest in acquiring other species such as pandas and white tigers. The planned expansion would see the creation of an indoor zoo, 5,900 square meters in size. “I don’t believe there would be enough space or that they would be able to provide adequately for those animals,” said Dave Neals, Welfare Director of Animals Asia, an ecological charity that has already tried to free the imprisoned animals.

The Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium must stop keeping these poor animals in captivity. Sign the petition below to save further animals from being trapped in this inhumane place.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau,

I am writing to express my grave concern about the recently announced plans to expand the Guangzhou Grandview Aquarium. The location has already been roundly criticized for its awful treatment of Pizza the polar bear, but rather than accept this international condemnation and provide a better home for this poor animal, officials have decided to imprison more animals in an unnatural and entirely unsuitable zoo.

These animals deserve open space and natural habitats, neither of which the planned expansion can provide. To imprison more animals would be to sentence them to a life of pain, sadness, and discomfort. I urge you to immediately intervene and cancel any plans for expansion.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is TRULY SHAMEFUL BY THE CHINESE. You are SO WICKED and CRUEL. STOP THIS DREADFUL CRUELTY NOW. RELEASE THE ANIMALS TO A SANCTUARY AWAY FROM CHINA NOW. NO MORE ANIMALS EVER….YOU BRING SHAME TO YOURSELVES AND YOUR COUNTRY…WICKED PEOPLE

  2. The only thing this zoo is teaching about animals is that it’s perfectly OK to use and abuse them. But we already knew this </3

    Unfortunately, the civilized world is totally besotted and beholden to China. So nothing that we say or do, will force China to change its wicked ways. Until the Chinese people mobilize themselves, and force change on their own government, NOTHING will change in China – and the rest of our civilized governments (for purely economic reasons) will continue grovelling before China.

      so true. fuck them all

    • Yes, because we are mainly regarded as “just foreigners”. I understand Simon’s feelings, but if we are to have any HOPE at all, with sole focus on the imprisoned animals’ welfare, it is imperative to grab at any small crack in the wall, any opening, that comes our way, and so with respect to this, it is CRUCIAL to support the new, growing animal welfare movement in China, in this way, supporting a foothold from within…the only way something is going to effectively deliver concrete, long lasting results. See http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jill-robinson-mbe-drmedvet-hc/chinas-rapidly-growing-an_b_4724971.html, among everything else.
      Governments and politicians are slow to move, for all the reasons you’ve described; quite frankly, it’s always been people that have started reality changing movements…

    Release the animals. Please.

  5. Disgusting, barbaric and abhorrent.
    On the other hand, what about the bears in Bern. I don’t see the difference. The worst thing God ever did, was putting “humans” on this beautiful earth

    the nasty ignorant cruel chinese will be the death of our beautiful planet and all life on it. they eat anything that moves, the rarer the better and are the sole movers of the vile trade in endangered species. the quackery they call ‘traditonal’ medicine requires the body parts of anything at all to give them a bigger cock (they think). and they believe the more brutally a dog or cat is killed the better it tastes – ‘tough men eat tough meat’. what a crock of shit. let’s persuade them that asian human flesh is endangered; then maybe they’ll eat each other up. perfect.

  7. Animals dont deserve be in Zoos… Try to live in a tiny cage for centuries….
