What corrupt people do in the name of conservation and public education is downright appalling and disturbing. One such corrupt business is Fur-Ever Wild, a petting zoo in Lakeville, Minnesota that admits to killing wolves and other animals and selling their pelts.

For $20, visitors can pet wolf pups, but after these babies get older, they mysteriously disappear, i.e. get shot, electrocuted, and skinned. Their furs are sold in the zoo’s gift shop alongside the skins of lynx, coyotes, and foxes, while other skins are directly sold to taxidermists and other parties. Investigators discovered wolves at the zoo to be no older than five years old, despite the fact that wolves in captivity can live up to seventeen years long – and the zoo has been in business since 2007.

Additionally, Fur-Ever Wild is guilty of animal neglect, as investigations found several animals with untreated infections and injuries, green drinking water, improper shelter from the elements, and inadequate nutrition (the animals are fed hot dogs!) Not to mention, animals were seen exhibiting symptoms of zoochosis, like compulsive pacing in small cages.

To make matters even worse, gray wolves are considered a threatened species and are protected under the Endangered Species Act, and the Animal Legal Defense Fund has filed a lawsuit against the zoo for their blatant violations of the law.

There is still a ways to go before Fur-Ever Wild officially gets shut down, though, and a petition on Care2 has been set up for the public to voice their opinion on the matter. Please take a moment to stand up for wolves and sign the petition.

And PLEASE share this with your network to increase awareness of this very serious issue and help get this despicable business shut down!
