As previously reported by WAN, 18-year-old Luis Eudoro Valencia was recently sentenced to six months in prison for attempting to smuggle an endangered Bengal tiger cub from Mexico into the U.S. last year.
Animal advocates agree that the sentence is not nearly long enough.
Worse is the fact that the innocent tiger cub received what may be a life sentence when he was sent to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
Our partner Care2 currently has a petition urging that the cub is transferred to a sanctuary.
It is feared that if the cub is forced to live in captivity, he may suffer from “zoochosis,” a condition that causes animals to hurt themselves and behave in other unusual ways, due to the stress of confinement.
In the wild, tigers typically roam across large distances, climb trees, run and swim, all with minimal human contact. This is not the case in captivity where animals are exploited for corporate profit.
Instead of being driven to madness, this Bengal tiger should be able to live his life in a sanctuary where he will have access to proper care, protection, and veterinary care, all without being forced to be on public display.
Please sign the Care2 petition urging the San Diego Zoo to send this precious cub to a sanctuary.
