Statement From PETA re Deadly Fire at Hollywild Animal Park

For Immediate Release:
January 9, 2015

Below, please find a statement from PETA Foundation Deputy General Counsel Delcianna Winders in response to today’s fire at Hollywild Animal Park, which has reportedly killed at least 28 animals:

“Enough is enough,” says Winders. “There’s been enough neglect at Hollywild Animal Park, PETA has filed enough complaints about this decrepit facility, and the authorities have cited it for enough violations of federal animal-protection law. Hollywild’s dangerously ramshackle enclosures and failure to provide animals with adequate veterinary care should have gotten it shut down long ago, and now dozens of animals have died. PETA is calling on the authorities to take action, strip Hollywild of its license, and ensure that no more animals die.”
