According to a report from Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF), a gray wolf, Siberian tiger, two black bears, and more than 50 other animals are suffering at Animaland, a deplorable roadside zoo in Pennsylvania.

Allegedly, Animaland officials have shown an inability to care for not just for the endangered Siberian tiger, wolf, and black bear, but also a macaque, three capuchin monkeys, an arctic fox, two bobcats, and numerous other creatures. The animals are all kept in small cages, on concrete floors, with little to no stimulation or other species of their kind to interact with. Given these conditions, ALDF filed a lawsuit March 9, 2016, against the facility.

Even though wolves are pack animals that naturally roam over vast territories, Bear, the grey wolf is kept alone in a cage too small for any animal of his size. As a result, Bear is uncharacteristically lethargic.

Baby, the tiger, also lives in a tiny, concrete-floored, unsanitary enclosure that  “appears to lack a regular water source,” the plaintiffs contend.

Two black bears, Shawn and Sandy, 17-year residents of the zoo, at least have each other, but the two are kept in cages barely large enough for them to walk around.

Two capuchin monkeys stare helplessly out of the metal wires of their cage at the Animaland Zoo. 




It’s a wonder this zoo is still in existence, especially considering that Animaland has received 60 violations in the past six years from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The attraction has been cited for its failure to meet even the most minimal requirements for proper care of its animals under the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA). You can help Bear, Baby, and the other animals suffering at Animaland by adding your name to a petition, calling for their release to sanctuaries here.
