Clarington Park Demo
August 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
FRIENDLY REMINDER TO OUR BELOVED COMMUNITY:
Animals are not ours for entertainment, they should not be used for exploitative purposes.
We applaud Clarington Outdoor Family Adventure Park for its redesign and new amazing features for children. There are plenty of fun and educational activities for children to do now. Plenty that do not have to involve innocent animals.
We also applaud them for relocating the animals, as times are changing and many people are seeing the cruelty behind zoos. It’s very good to see them attempting to find more suitable homes for the exotic animals. We wish that the animals could go to an accreditated sanctuary, where they will be less stressed and have better spaces to roam.
We will be hosting a demonstration on August 19, 12pm-3pm to remind our community that this establishment is still exploiting animals.
We are also very concerned with the recent addition of the African Lion Cub Encounter program (you can pay $199+ for a photo op with infant lions). The cubs should be bonding with their mothers, and not be induced to high-stress situations so young.
Please join us across the street for a friendly, loving demo that will spark conversations about the relocation of the animals, and the safety of the baby cubs.
This is a PEACEFUL and FRIENDLY demo. We want to create a loving environment and educational opportunity to educate the public. No violence will be tolerated (from anyone). Some signs will be provided. If you bring your own, please ensure they are family friendly! Parking is in the field across from the Park. Any questions send to Sally Squirrel: firstname.lastname@example.org
