Louisiana's Captive Animals Need Your Help Now

Animals in Louisiana need your help right now.

As the state’s Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) is contemplating passing a ruling that will protect wild animals, PETA is calling for the public’s support to make sure it happens.

The LDWF is looking into closing a loophole in a current state ban of wild animal ownership that allows roadside zoos to be exempt from it and hold tigers, bears, wolves and primates in captivity. The animals are kept in small enclosures and are frequently bred so the privately owned attractions can have babies to showcase to the public only discarding of them when they get bigger.

While the new regulation wouldn’t stop all zoos from depriving animals of enough space to run, hunt and lead a normal life, it would diminish their numbers, making smaller roadside zoos unable to keep animals.

The LDWF is also proposing unannounced inspections of facilities that privately hold wild animals to make sure they are properly cared for at all times.

That’s where you come in. By going to PETA’s website, you can send a pre-written message saying you support the stronger LDWF regulations to protect wild animals.

If you live in Louisiana you can do even more by attending the public meeting on the subject to be held on Tuesday, September 2, 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, 2000 Quail Dr. (Louisiana Rm.), Baton Rouge, LA 70898.
