lonely seal is rotting away under pounds of seaweed in a
Spanish zoo. Photos circulating on the internet show
one of the animal's eyes is swollen and most likely infected,
the other shadowed under a shoot of seaweed that seems to
be lodged painfully into the seal's pores. Its flippers
scrape the bottom of its filthy enclosure, which contains
barely enough water to cover the marine mammal. But
the rest of the seal is totally concealed under pounds and
pounds of heavy, tight, painful seaweed.
The condition that this seal is
in can only be a result of years of neglect.
The Mini Zoo in the Magdalena Peninsula in Santander, Spain,
where the seal miserably lives, can clearly not be trusted to
care for any animals. Zoos are already precarious
environments — caging and displaying wild animals for economic
gain and human entertainment almost always leads to
exploitation and abuse. This is, sadly, a perfect
example of that. Please sign the petition and demand that the zoo
be shut down at once, and all of its animals be sent to
The Care2 Petitions Team
P.S. The Mini
Zoo in Santander, Spain is treating its animals disgracefully.
Sign the petition to shut down the zoo and send
these poor creatures to sanctuaries now!
