Cincinnati – Below, please find a statement from PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet in response to Ndume the gorilla’s arrival this morning at the Cincinnati Zoo:
After years of pressure from PETA, Ndume is now back where he was born, in a place where he’s supported by expert care and has a chance to socialize with other gorillas.
Among other efforts, PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—filed an amicus brief in support of the Cincinnati Zoo’s lawsuit against The Gorilla Foundation.
