Justice for Lillith the Lynx

Target: Carwyn Jones, First Minister of Wales

Goal: Prevent Ceredigion County Council from putting zoo animals to death.

An escaped lynx from a Wales zoo was unfairly put to death due to “concerns about its likely behavioural response if it was startled or inadvertently confronted by a member of the public, especially by a young child.” Lillith, as the animal was called, was accused of not only being a danger to humans, but of killing a farmer’s sheep. The zoo itself is currently under investigation for having allowed Lillith to escape in the first place; the owners have admitted that the facilities were in poor condition when they took over the business.

This is a tragedy that could have easily been avoided. While it is only natural to feel concern over a wildcat on the loose, Lillith did not attempt to harm any human beings, nor is there official proof that she killed those sheep. The council acted rashly; they did not give the zoo ample chance to recapture her, and their actions put the other animals at risk should they escape.

The zoo itself is currently attempting to fix their problems, but until then, we must ensure that the county council does not put any more innocent animals to death simply for being “on the loose.” Sign this petition to demand justice for Lillith and to protect the zoo’s other animals from such a fate.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear First Minister Jones,

Ceredigion County Council’s decision to put down Lillith the lynx was unjust and unfair. Their actions were inspired by one farmer’s accusation and pre-emptive concerns regarding her actions towards human beings, when in reality there is no proof that she killed that farmer’s sheep or that she came anywhere near human beings, specifically small children. The Borth zoo was prepared to capture her before they had her put to death.

The zoo is well aware that any animal could have escaped and created alarm, but that does not mean those animals deserve to die. The owners have closed down the zoo and will be working to fix the problems they inherited, but until then, it is possible other animals may accidentally escape, in danger of facing the same grim fate as Lillith. Please ensure that the council does not have any other animals put to death in the future.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Carwyn Jones needs fucking slaughtering, that Lynx was more afraid of humans and the barbarians, and didn’t deserve to be murdered, I hate the bloody human race.they have no soul, just a depraved evil heart. May you rot in hell, you murdering scum.

  3. THIS IS A ZOO AND DON’T TELL ME THAT NO ONE THERE HAS A TRANQUILIZER GUN??/ THIS IS SUCH A HUGE TRAGEDY. IT WAS NOT ONLY UNNECESSARY IF THEY HAD HOUSED THE CAT CORRECTLY BUT THEN NOT TO HAVE THE PROPER EQUIPMENT TO CAPTURE IT ONCE BECAUSE OF THEIR IRRESPONSIBILITY IT WAS KILLED. THIS MAKES ME SICK AND MAD AS HELL. IF THEY HAVE A CHANCE AT ALL TO STAY OPEN WE DEMAND THAT THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE, FIX THE HOUSING AND BE PREPARED WITH A TRANQUILIZER GUN GOD FORBID THEY EVER NEED ONE. RIP POOR CAT AND MAY YOU GET JUSTICE FOR YOUR HORRIFIC AND UNNECESSARY MURDER BY STUPID HUMANS!!

    The council scumbags who killed this poor Lynx need to be wiped off this planet,ensuring a slow and painful death for these vile bastards.An eye for an eye! A tranquilliser gun could and should have been used to capture Lillith the lynx.

  5. It should be noted that the lynx that was shot had been hand-reared so showed no agression to any perso, which means that the cat could have easily been tranquilised and transported back to the zoo

    I think that the barbarity in the killing of this most beautiful cat says a lot about the scum that had anything to do to do with her demise,may her face haunt you for the rest of your lives, but of course they don’t have any feelings do they!
