GuZoo Wants to Sell Animals
June 6, 2011 § 3 Comments
According to their most recent post… the GuZoo clan are not giving up without a “fight”.
We have so many concerns right now, from the future of the animals to how we are going to pay our utility bill next month. And in the meantime find energy to seek legal help for our situation.
Many comments and questions have been directed to us regarding to future of our animals. We have not been given anything in writing to say that we must relocate our animals. We have been told verbally our “Decommission Plan” will be implemented shortly. However, we are unsure as to how much control we will be given to determine the fate of our animals.
We have however, been told by a representative of the Minister that many animals will be euthanized. This is not our will. If they allow us to stay open and operating, these animals can live out the rest of their lives here. We are told there will be no relocation efforts made for Wallace our male lion, our four black bears, and our white tail deer and elk herds. These animals must be euthanized.
I want to make it clear, that this is being forced upon us, and if and when it comes down to the date of these animals execution, it will not be GuZoo Animal Farm owner or staff who will pull the trigger. I can assure you of that.
Please direct any questions concerning the reasons for euthanizing these animals to Sustainable Resources and Development.http://www.srd.alberta.ca/AboutUs/SRDContacts/Default.aspxThey should be able to provide you with their reasons for the slaughter.
As for the rest of the animals, if we are indeed forced to give them all up, these animals will be SOLD, not given away, to people and organizations willing and licensed to possess them.
The sale of our animals is currently the only source of income we can seek at this time. All fair market value offers to purchase domestic and licensed animals will be considered. Please do not phone us with offers, please email so I may file your phone number and offer for reference should we indeed have to follow through.
There is a campaign underway right now to raise money for legal defence. You can make a donation in any amount by cash or check and bring it to The GuZoo Animal Farm…
There has been a suggestion that if every supporter of the GuZoo would donate a single dollar, there would easily be enough money to cover legal fees.
