Finally! Feds Suspend Jambbas Ranch’s License
After years of PETA complaints, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has finally brought the hammer down on Jambbas Ranch, a North Carolina roadside zoo that has an appalling history of failing animals.
In addition to a fine, for the next four months the facility cannot exhibit or deal in animals and must “cease and desist” from violating the federal Animal Welfare Act. Before it can resume operations, it must prove that it’s compliant with the law—something that it has been unable to do for some time.
Late last year, PETA, the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), and local citizens filed an urgent, formal complaint with the USDA and attached chilling photographs of the horrible conditions at Jambbas, including a dead rabbit locked in a cage, mounds of animal waste underneath the wire rabbit cages, filth-polluted water in the goats’ enclosure, and a bison with raw, open wounds.
What You Can Do
Ask officials to revoke this awful facility’s license permanently.
