The zoo used to be the biggest lion breeder in the country, yet only three cubs have been born recently. The zoo is also driving up ticket prices, indicating overall failure. The lack of clean water and healthy conditions for animals is obviousóthis zoo needs to be shut down. Sign this petition to urge the Prime Minister of Pakistan to close this zoo due to its infringement on the welfare of its animals.

I have to wonder what "clean" really means. I signed it, but when I had horses, and everyone else's horses, they drank out of tubs that we cleaned when the algae built up. We even put large goldfish in them to help clean the water. What constitutes dirty? Polluted maybe? Just wondering out loud.

They knew that the canal would be down for repairs. Why didn't they have water trucked in so the animals would have clean water to drink? Poor management and no foresight! Take the animals to another zoo and keep them isolated so they won't spread any diseases to the other animals NOW! THEY ARE DYING!! Please help them with clean water!! Signed and noted!!

It's time to realize that we simply cannot provide habitats that allow animals in zoos to participate in their normal species' behavior. There's no way to keep animals on display for the general public and provide the spaces and experiences natural to animals in the wild. Studies done on zoo visitors have shown that zoos are no more educational than any other theme park or carnival attraction, and that people who visit zoos are no more knowledgeable about, or likely to support conservation efforts than those who haven't been. Zoos rarely manage to successfully breed animals to be introduced into the wild, and instead breed to keep the tickets selling, even when they have no space for more animals. They then sell older animals to brokers who then may sell the animals to circuses, canned hunting operations that allow rich people to shoot a confined animal (lions, tigers, giselle, etc.) or to taxidermists who skin the former zoo animals, selling their pelts or stuffed bodies for thousands of dollars. Is any of this defensible, even if the water is clean? I think not. But at the very least, these animal prisoners deserve to have clean food and water.

These animals need to be sent elsewhere to receive proper care! Water is an essential of life. If it can not be provided, let the animals go to other zoos, sanctuaries, or set them free!!
