Demand Zoo Free ‘Mitzu’ the Bear from Confinement

Target: Prayut Chan-o-cha, Prime Minister of Thailand

Goal: Relocate allegedly mistreated and confined sun bear to a wildlife sanctuary.

After a sun bear named Mitzu escaped from his enclosure and fatally mauled a tiger in another pen, officials at the Safari Park Open Zoo in Thailand allegedly had the bear declawed and confined to a cage outside of public view. This is where Mitzu has spent the last decade, and according to reports from visitors and zoo employees, he is languishing due to a lack of enrichment and proper care. Demand that Mitzu be relocated to an accredited sanctuary so he can be freed from this misery.

The zoo’s many tigers, and in particular its tiger cubs, are considered to be its biggest money maker. Tourists often visit Safari Park Open Zoo for photo ops with the cubs, which is why many suspect Mitzu was removed from display after he had killed one of the attraction’s prized big cats. Observers have said that Mitzu appears to be depressed and rarely moves from one corner of his already tiny metal cage. This form of ‘punishment’ is cruel and unjust. No animal should have to spend their life in confinement, with no social interaction or outside stimuli.

Mitzu deserves to spend the rest of his life at an accredited wildlife sanctuary where he can experience fresh air and space to move freely. Sign this petition to demand that he be relocated immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Chan-o-Cha,

A bear has allegedly spent over a decade in a tiny cage at Safari Park Open Zoo. According to zoo employees, the bear was allegedly declawed and forced into confinement after he had fatally mauled a tiger during an escape attempt. Rather than trying to improve zoo conditions and make the enclosures more secure, as one may expect, it appears that the zoo’s owners decided to ‘punish’ the bear for killing one of its more popular animals and have since forced it to live in such inhumane conditions.

There is no reason why this bear should continue to languish at the back of the zoo. We urge you to intervene and demand that he be relocated at once to an accredited wildlife sanctuary so he can have some semblance of a normal life once more.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. NO LOGRO ENTENDER EL GRADO MISERABLE DE CRUELDAD DEL SER HUMANO. ME QUEDA CLARO QUE SÓLO MEDIANTE LA COMPASIÓN PODREMOS IMPULSAR NUESTRA PROPIA EVOLUCIÓN. DEFINITIVAMENTE LA CRUELDAD NOS DENIGRA COMO ESPECIE; Y LA PERSONA QUE ES CRUEL CON UN ANIMAL, NO PUEDE SER UNA BUENA PERSONA. ESA PERSONA Y SU TERRIBLE CRUELDAD, UNIDA A TANTAS OTRAS EN EL MUNDO, NO NOS DEJA AVANZAR EN NUESTRO PROCESO DE EVOLUCIÓN.

    There are two important words…..RIGHT & WRONG…..
    When you have animals abused, killed, given no care and held as a prisoner, all documented, filmed, testimony, and found in the most unacceptable way, THEN WHY DO WE WAIT 20 YEARS TO SAVE THAT ANIMAL, THAT IS “””””””WRONG””””. ONE EXAMPLE IS NOSEY THE ELEPHANT AND A MILLION MORE VICTIMS. THOSE ANIMALS CONTINUE TO DO WITHOUT, BE TORTURED, LIFE TAKEN FROM THEM AND FOR WHAT ????????? THE SYSTEM THAT HAS FAILED ALL OF THEM……………RIGHT……..IS WHEN THE UNACCEPTABLE IS SEEN, KNOWN FACTS, VIDEOS, TESTIMONY, ETC, AND THE ANIMAL IS TAKEN FROM THE OWNER AND NEVER RETURNED….THE ANIMAL CANNOT CRY FOR AND SPEAK UP….BUT TAKE A LOOK AT THAT ANIMAL AND SEE THE CONDITION, STRESS, WOUNDS, LACK OF MUSCLE FROM IMPROPER FOOD, WOUNDS FOR NO REASON JUST CRUEL TRAINER’S. I WANT……RIGHT…….TO BE THE ANSWER TO TAKE OVER AND LETS NOT HAVE INNOCENT ANIMALS SUFFER ANY MORE. SAVE TIME IN THE SO CALLED SYSTEM….SAVE THE ANIMALS FIRST AND GIVE THEM BACK THE LIFE THEY WERE BORN INTO.

  4. OMG – how can a zoo go ahead and declaw a bear – are you kidding me – rescue all these animals from this zoo – shut down this zoo – that is terrible

  5. Let’s face it. NO animal will be treated with compassion until they gain rights as humans have, (not that that changes everyone’s treatment of their fellow humans). Without rights, animals have no reassurances about how they will be treated. Some people just don’t see them as separate entities with emotions, joy, pain and, yes, the capacity to love. They are only seen as objects. It will be a very long time before all men respect animals and treat them as “brothers and sisters”. In the meantime, we need to fight for more and better rights for our fellow creatures and stiffer penalties for humans that treat them wrong.

    • ‘ brothers and sister’s🤭no.they are animals,created by GOD.and these people who are cruel WILL GIVE AN ACCOUNT TO HIM .

  6. get this poor bear out of there in fact get all animals out of these oriental countries they are nothing but sadists all they think about is torture kill and kill some more

  7. This article is not based on fact at all. That’s not even mitzu in the photo.

    The source for this story is a drug addicted Muslim ex member of staff. He is also a heavy drinker who takes advantage of young volunteer girls.
