‘Kangaroo’ to Dickerson Park Zoo: Don’t Make Me a Target
It looks like Dickerson Park Zoo had a loose kangaroo on its property last week. But don’t fret: He wasn’t escaping—he was protesting! In fact, it was actually a PETA member dressed as a kangaroo, but hey, now we’re just splitting hairs.
Documents received by PETA reveal that in 2007, the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, Missouri, “donated” a kudu and a kangaroo to Buddy Jordan, a notorious animal dealer who has been featured in numerous media investigative reports, all of which documented that Jordan sold animals to hunting ranches, operators of exotic-animal auctions, exotic-animal breeders and dealers, unaccredited zoos, and pet owners. Check out the news story about this demo here.
PETA animals in entertainment specialist (and my “donkey basketball”-fighting pal) Daniel Hauff was quoted at the protest as saying, “Investigative reports show that Buddy Jordan sells these animals to exotic-animal auctions, breeders, and dealers; hunting ranches; and unaccredited facilities.”
