Rescue the San Francisco Zoo

Now is the time we forever change the San Francisco Zoo. City officials must act now to ensure that future generations can visit a zoo that has a focus on animal welfare. I am a California Resident and I support The Rescue Plan for The San Francisco Zoo. I agree with the following: -Management at San Francisco Zoo must change. No more business as usually. -All existing animals should be properly cared for before new animals are acquired or new projects are undertaken. -Every effort should be made to enhance each animal\'s quality of life through environmental and behavioral enrichment programs. -Ensure enclosures are designed to maximize space for the animals and meeting the specific needs of each species. -Exhibit enclosures should depict naturalistic landscapes with a focus on the animals. -Any new animals should be acquired from the pool of rescued exotic, wildlife or domestic sources. -Animals should be provided a home for life. No animal shall be released, sold, transported, traded, or euthanized unless such action is determined to be in the best interest of the animal. -Animals shall not be bred solely for the purpose of gaining publicity or attracting visitors. The San Francisco Zooâ

    7 years ago Comments: I was at this zoo last week and it is appalling. The Polar Bear exhibit was disturbing and to watch that poor bear pace back and forth bought me to tears. That and the male gorilla charging forward to us and pounding on the (thin) glass petition scared me in so many ways. This zoo needs to relocate their animals and enclose its zoo keepers in similar conditions.
