At el Parque de las Ciencias (The Science Park), a zoo in Bayamón, Puerto Rico, the animals endure terrible conditions. In fact, the zoo barely even meets the minimum standards set by the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), yet it remains open to the public...

Hi Everyone,


 


I am sorry I have not updated in a while...


I was trying to gain the support from those in PR to get involved in helping these animals.


I was able to get in contact with a Vet (Dr. Sosa) that worked at this zoo until last January.

I had a chance to ask him about some of the USDA reports, and basically, what he said is that the mayor/city does not give them much money to do anything for this zoo. They pretty much do the bare minimum and what is necessary to comply with the bare minimum of standards under the Animal Welfare Act.


The cages are from 1986 and have not been updated since then. The only thing they have changed is the outside wiring of the enclosures.


Sadly, when an animal is confiscated (from someone who ilegally had it), it usually ends up at this zoo.


The vet called the zoo "obsolete" and is not against my petitioning to the mayor for change. He agrees that there can be so much improvement for these animals (especially for the alligator and the cayman). The zoo by his definition is obsolete because people do not visit as much as they used to so they are not generating any money for these animals either. He just wanted to assure me that (while he was there) they tried to do all that they can under the minimal resources they get from the city, which sometimes is so little that the biologist on staff buys things for the animals out of her own small salary.


The way these animals are being kept are very primordial conditions and only upkept to please the most minimal requirements set forth by the Animal Welfare Act.

So, today, I ask you ALL to please help these animals. Ask the mayor to DO SOMETHING!!! Please sign the petition and send him letters asking him to build these animals new enclosures OR SEND THEM OFF to places who can offer them the right conditions in which they can spend the rest of their lives...The animals that are confiscated on the island should not be send to such a deplorable place either...how is this any fair to any of these animals???

The mayor just spent 3million on a new Golf Course in the city...what about the animals? These are living beings and should be a priority!

.

...I just found out that the city printed my letter within their monthly newspaper which goes out to all the people of the city. However, they did not add a response...SO they do get your letters!!! Keep sending them in!! Demand answers and action!!!

Also, if you have not done so, please sign the petition! 

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/238521535


If you can, post/mail a letter to PR (for those in the US it costs the same as sending a regular letter to any other state).

Last Friday, Puerto Rico's governor officially made Cockfighting the national sport of Puerto Rico!


Unbelievable!!


Here is the link to the story (I could not find a story in English yet, so it is in spanish).

http://nuevo.primerahora.com/XStatic/primerahora/template/nota.aspx?n=98743

Cockfighting will be allowed from 9am to midnight every day and up to 50 fights will be allowed in this time frame. This will increase the farming of these animals to supply the high demand that this will have. People involved in this are also eligeable to collect monetary assistance from the government.


Send Letters to the Governor
explaining that he has truly signed in support of animal abuse and cruelty. He has also signed on behalf of monetary gain without considering the desensitizing impact that this will have on future generations, which will now see a 'blood sport' involving the disrepect of living beings in a positive light. He should be ashamed that while many states have banned cockfighting but that Puerto Rico has actually claimed it as a traditional and cultural experience.


Just because something is tradition, does not make it right in today's world when we know so much more than we did. Instead of going backwards, Puerto Rico should be moving forwards with time!


Let's not forget that a nationa should be judged by the way it treats its animals...what does this say about the moral progression of Puertio Rico and those who supposedly lead the country?

Hello to All,

I apologize if you have received this message already...I urge you that you please take the time to read this message.

It has been suggested that my signature goal may be a bit high, so I wanted to take the time to explain why I am so adamant in seeing change for these animals in this disgusting zoo and why I have set the goal that I have.

Over 4, 000 people will receive this email through my network, but how many will sign?
I am grateful for all the signatures I have gotten so far, but out of all the groups I post on and all the messages I have sent out, I am lucky to even get one signature a day.

What is so wrong with my petition? I have pictures, documents, updates, responses from the mayor and still I get no reaction from many on Care2...Is it not worth anyone's time??????  I see orgs posting their petitions to save animals in zoo's all over the world and they get thousands upon thousands upon thousands of signatures, so why are animals in Puerto Rico being ignored?

I have set a goal of 10,000 to be able to get the attention of the mayor, governor, and media of Puerto Rico. They can ignore me - one person, but they can not ignore a multitude of people who choose to give animals in PR a voice.

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/238521535

They have violated my rights, prevented due process,  ignore my phone calls and letters, they brake laws because they do not even know their own laws and regulations (Law 67 that protect
animals in PR...ask any of the police men - most dont even know it exists) so
they dismiss animal cruelty cases in court b/c they just don't care
about animals.

The police in the area where this zoo is
located laugh at the thought that someone would bother them with a
complaint of animal abuse. If they refused to attend me and I had two PR police agents with me, how do they treat the lone citizen who might call or come into the police station with a complaint of animal abuse and cruelty?

At this moment, they are trapping or as the newspaper quoted agents from the Agriculture and Government stated 'erradicating' monkeys on the island that managed to get to PR naturally many years ago, shooting them or
poisoning them because they feel they ruin their crops (see here:http://www.endi.com/XStatic/endi/template/nota.aspx?n=229772)

There is a huge problem with strays which the government refuses to address
seriously....many of these end up poisoned (tres pasitos - an illegal substance commonly used to do the job - Click here )by those that are not
tolerable of their presence (that is if they don't kill them in some
other horrible way or they just dont die of starvation).
Take a look at this page Click Here - then Click on the link labeled 'Sato Point of View'
A sato is a stray animal (warning - several of the pictures are graphic).



So, why do I ask for such a high number of signatures?

Because 10,000 sigs would let them know that people all over the world cared enough to
sign for these animals.
Puerto Rico relies heavily upon
tourism...knowing that so many world-wide are aware of the way the
treat animals would hopefully cause them to react.

All I ask for is your signature to help these animals!

I dont benefit in ANY way...but these animals do, so please help the animals!

Hello Everyone,

As you may be aware, I have been trying to get help for animals in a deplorable zoo in Puerto Rico.
(see pictures here:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/238521535)



Please sign if you have not done so. Forward Widely- as I am trying to get as many signatures as possible to help these animals.

I have some new actions that you can take on behalf of these animals. The
police tried to intimidate me and keep the conditions that these
animals are in quiet, but I think that with your help we can get this
out there to the media. After all, there is much power in a group of
individuals working towards the same goals.

Read how my rights were violated when I tried to bring attention about the animals living in deplorable conditions in a zoo in Puerto Rico, here:
http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=12535&pst=1007840


Last I was informed, the mayors office had set-up an appointment to meet with the
animal protections officer that was going to represent me in the case,
and I was successfully able to file a formal complaint against the
police offciers that tried to intimidate me for bringing the animal's
sotuation to light in fear that I would smudge the mayors reputation
when elections are only a year away....

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Action#1
Please
write the Tourism Company in Puerto Rico and tell them that animal
crueltyand the outward violation of human rights is NOT good business
for an island that relies heavily upon tourism.....

Tell them
that they should be ashamed of the way animals are being treated in
Puerto Rico and until these animals are taken care of properly, that
you will spend your money elsewhere....

Let them know that people world-wide care about animals and the way they are treated!

Feel free to send them a link to the petition which has pictures:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/238521535

(Go to the bottom of the Page and Click on 'Contact Us'


Action #2
Email newspapers in Puerto Rico and the US and let them know what goes on on the island....

Please change the wording and add your own perspective of what happened and of the conditions in which the animals are being kept in.

SAMPLE LETTER by Michele S.:

I have recently become aware of a situation in Puerto Rico that I

believe you, as a respected member of the media, will find worth reporting to

the general public. The case is now under investigation!.


Please take the time to inform the public of the misconduct that has taken

place at the Baymon,North Police Headquarters on Tuesday,May ,22 ,2007.
On this date,First Lieutenant Victor Bernabe Diaz along with officer
Carlos.L.Quinones, both of the Bayamon North Police Headquarters,
refused the rights of biologist and citizen of Puerto Rico, Julia
Feliz, to file a formal complaint against the Parque de las Ciencias in
Bayamon regarding the deplorable conditions in which the parks
Zoological Center is keeping animals.


First
Lieutenant Diaz and Officer Quinones chose to ignore the law to protect
the municipality and not only violated the rights of Julia Feliz,who
was accompanied by a Police officer from the south side of Puerto Rico
as well an animal cruelty officer from The Society for the Protection
of Animals of PR,located in Ponce ,Puerto Rico, by their refusal to
assist a citizen in filing a formal complaint they were verbally
hostile and insulting towards Ms Feliz, her credibility as a biologist
was questioned,even though Ms Feliz had well documented facts in regard
to her complaint.

First
Lieutenant Diaz and Officer Quinones blatantly said that it would not
be a good time for bad publicity for Mayor Ramon Luis Rivera Cruz, the
mayor of Bayamon, as election time is in about a year.

I
have seen pictures of the zoo in Bayamon and I feel disgusted that such
deplorable and unkept so called zoos still exist in times where we
recognize that animals need more than just a bowl of food to survive.
Clean water, spacious and naturalized enclosures, and appropriate
conditions should be common sense for an institution that calls itself
a zoo.

I believe that you,as a respected
member of the media, will agree that this situation is in need of
public awareness. To ignore this would be to condone the actions of
First Lieutenant Victor Bernabe Diaz and Police Officer
Carlos.L.Quinones allowing them to continue violating the rights of the
citizens of Puerto Rico in order to support their own political agenda.

I sincerely thank you for your time and
attention and have faith thatnyou will use your position within the
media to inform the public of this situation.

Sincerely,

{YOUR NAME}

ask them to take notice of this petition and these animals - Puerto Ricans need to take action and take proper care of these animals!

-EMAIL and/or send a letter to Holiday Inn Corporation telling them they shoud be ashamed to take part in a project to build a CASINO, OVER 100 ROOMS, 2 RESTAURANTS, CONVENTION CENTER, AND GYM on the same grounds were these animals are being kept!

-EMAIL the Mayor of Bayamon and tell him to take the welfare of these animals seriously and that moving them throughout the city or sticking them in a fun park in 2 or more years will not solve anything NOW. He needs to take the biology, ecology, and well being of these animals seriously and into consideration to fully give them what they need. Animals are not here for our monetary gain!

You can also tell him that his new hotel and casino will not attract tourism to the city specially when they keep these animals in such deplorable conditions!

-EMAIL Primera Hora Newspaper in Puerto Rico and tell them that next time they write an article to at least take the time to research other establishments and the specific needs of each animal before printing that the conditions in which these animals are in is not that bad at all.

Hi Everyone!

Thank you to all that have signed the petition to help animals trapped in horrible conditions within a zoo in Puerto Rico! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/238521535

Here is another action you may be able to take to help them:

Yesterday, I contacted as many newspapers as I could in PR (I've yet to hear from
them) about the petition asking them to please let Puerto Ricans know
about the situation that these animals are living in and about the USDA
citations...To help - You can send an email to the same newspapers and
ask them to take notice of this petition and these animals - Puerto Ricans need to take action and help these animals!



Newspaper that I got in contact with & their email addresses:

Periodico La Perla (The Pearl Newspaper) -
redaccion@periodicolaperla.com,
gente@periodicolaperla.com,
laperla@periodicolaperla.com

El Vocero

El Nuevo Dia (The New Day)
opinion@elnuevodia.com (this email is for readers to write their opinion on something and they will usually publish the letter).

Website of the City of Bayamon:
http://www.municipiodebayamon.com/

Emails they provide:
igbayamon@coqui.net

Address: Casa Alcaldía Bayamón
Box 1588
Bayamón, Puerto Rico 00960

If you click on ''Recreacion'' on the Bayamon website, you will see a link to EL Parque De Las Ciencias (notice how they do not have any photos of the zoological part even though it is mentioned as one of the attractions...) - Could it be that they are embarrassed?

Thank you everyone!

Please feel free to contact any of the newspapers and the city of Bayamon for these animals. For photographic proof, they can be directed to the petition.
