There is a critical situation in Ontario: due to a lack of provincial zoo regulations, there are over one thousand wild animals being held captive in degrading conditions.
Our new report, “Nothing new at the zoo”, highlights how these animals are being kept in horrible and unnatural conditions:
Ontario continues to lag far behind as one of the last provinces to adequately address captive wildlife issues like roadside zoos.
CTV’s investigative reporting program, W5, has released their own exposé calling national attention to these roadside zoos and the sad and even dangerous conditions animals live in at these facilities.
We know that this issue can be solved; we need the Ontario government to develop and implement a mandatory province-wide zoo licensing system.
Join us and take this moment to speak out for the captive wild animals in Ontario. Show the Ontario Solicitor General that Canadians are concerned about this and urge him to act.
