USDA Revokes Zoo’s License

Published by PETA.


Animals suffered and died left and right at a shabby Florida roadside zoo, which is aptly called Vanishing Species Wildlife. The outfit routinely took animals on the road to fairs, schools, and summer camps even when they were sick, hungry, dying, and stressed. Good news: Federal authorities have revoked this zoo’s license!

Schools and parents, take note: Paying animal exhibitors to hold presentations for your children supports cruelty to animals. Don’t patronize any business that exploits animals for profit—please remove field trips to zoos and circuses from your school’s curriculum.
