Zoo Owners Upset Over Legal Dispute Feed Live Donkey to Tigers | Animal Petitions

Zoo Owners Who Fed Live Donkey to Tigers Must be Punished | Animal Petitions
Angry shareholders in a Chinese zoo fed a live donkey to tigers as a way to protest a court’s decision they didn’t like. The shareholders stated that they voted in favor of this horrific act because the court froze the zoo’s assets and they were no longer receiving profits. Demand justice for this innocent donkey torn to bits by tigers.

Shocking video footage showed the men pushing the frightened donkey down into the tiger enclosure. The tigers pounced on the donkey almost immediately and mauled it for thirty minutes before it finally died. The shareholders also planned to send a sheep into the enclosure, but zoo officials stopped them in time to save the sheep.

Officials at Yancheng Safari Park issued an apology, stating that they are working on improving their safety standards. They will be holding a meeting to “calm shareholders’ nerves.”

However, this OUTRAGEOUS, horrific act of cruelty cannot go unpunished. Sign petition and demand that these shareholders face legal charges and receive the maximum penalty.
