PETA Foundation Deputy Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet released the following statement in response to the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s seizure today of numerous exotic animals from the notorious Stump Hill Farm:
Today, Ohio authorities gave numerous exotic animals a chance at a great future, including the chimpanzee Tootie, whose freedom from solitary confinement PETA has demanded for years. The Ohio Dangerous Wild Animal Act is clearly working, and PETA won’t stop pushing until no more animals are left suffering and neglected in Stump Hill Farm’s exploitative, filthy facilities.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and more information about Stump Hill Farm is available here.
