At Spring River Park & Zoo, which is owned by the city of Roswell, New Mexico, they’re having an epidemic of animal suffering. Animals are confined to cramped, concrete pits or tiny cages, with no room to roam, run, or engage in other natural behavior. Bears, mountain lions, bobcats, and a coyote have all been documented continuously pacing back and forth, which is a sign of extreme distress and frustration. Bears and mountain lions are confined to barren, concrete pits, in which they are unable to dig, build nests, roam, or forage, as they would do in the wild. Other animals are confined to cramped cages, in which they can only take a few steps in each direction. These animals are obese, which is likely the result of the lack of space. These animals are going insane out of sheer deprivation. PETA has repeatedly offered to help Spring River place the animals in reputable sanctuaries, where they would finally be able to get the care they need. But the roadside zoo and the city have refused to do what’s right. The bears and mountain lions are still trapped in concrete dungeons. And the bob cats, lemurs, and other wild animals are still confined to these tiny pens. Please ask Spring River Park & Zoo and the city of Roswell to do the right thing: Retire these animals to reputable sanctuaries now.
