Please Sign the Petition

On Wednesday, December 29, 2021 a man who was unauthorized to be in or near the Malayan Tiger Eko’s enclosure at Naples Zoo At  Caribbean Gardens, in Naples, FL stuck his hand/arm in, enticing or antagonizing the animal. Eko, part of a “Critically Endangered” species took hold of his arm by mouth. Police could not get the tiger to release the man, and had to shoot the animal, who later died. Malayan tigers are classed as critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Fewer than 200 of the animals remain in the wild, according to the World Wildlife Fund. There is now 1 less beautiful creature on the planet, thanks to the irresponsible and ignorant actions of this man. Eko’s death is 100% the result of this man’s actions. He worked for a 3rd party cleaning company and was not authorized to be in that area. Charges of criminal nature MUST be filed, and while the man has suffered medical consequences he must be held accountable for the loss. Please add your support and demand Collier County press charges against him, and the cleaning company. Negligence, Animal Abuse, and Criminal Trespassing Resulting In Loss Of Protected Animal Life. Remember Harambe, We owe these animals true protection!
