Animal Rights - Animal Welfare

The Siberian Tiger is an Endangered Species inhabiting mainly the Sikhote Alin mountain region with a small subpopulation in southwest Primorye province in the Russian Far East where their dense and waterproof coats are built to withstand the cold temperatures. These beautiful creatures now reside in a crappy run-down zoo in Cyprus that should be shut down due to it's extremely poor living conditions, of not only exotic endangered tigers, but also of their Bird & Animal Park.

Some of the birds are kept in very small cages and aren't even allowed to fully stand upright due to the inadequate height of cage(s), with little to no shade from the scorching hot summer temperatures + poor water (small dirty dishes) and severe lack of care & compassion for these animals. This isn't a Zoo, but a prison for all it's residents. Please sign this petition in hopes of (at least) getting better accommodation for it's animal prisoners. These tigers need to roam and hunt and need a bigger living space or need to be moved to an appropriate Wildlife Sanctuary.. now!

They need a (safe, unpolluted) natural pond to bathe in, an air-conditioned room to keep cool, dens built as a refuge from the (temperatures can soar here during summer months - 37* C is probably a good day) heat.. and a better diet. They need wildlife experts & veterinarians called in regularly to oversee the situation and determine if the tigers are thriving. Throwing them some chicken and a few ice cubes in a pool is NOT SATISFACTORY! If the zoo can't afford to invest in the welfare of these tigers, and all of it's animals, it should release them immediately.

Please do the right thing, and sign this petition. Change starts here! Thank you!
