Sign Petition Demanding Closure Of Calgary Zoo Before Another Senior Wolf Is Killed To Make Room For Younger Ones

While the law might state that animals are property, most animal lovers strongly disagree. No one would judge you for throwing away an old toy because you didn’t want it anymore, but most people would call their local animal protection agency if you tried to do the same thing to a pet.

But that is just what the Calgary Zoo in Alberta, Canada did last month. Kali, a grey wolf, was one of the most beloved animals in the zoo. So much, in fact, that last year the zoo used her in a campaign to promote an online survey to determine Canada’s greatest animal. After more than 10,000 people voted, Kali was declared the winner.

But even her beloved status couldn’t save her. Last month, the zoo put her down, simply because they wanted to make room for other, younger wolves.

Although Kali was a senior wolf, she was still very much alive and enjoying life. But because the zoo wanted to make more money with younger “cuter” pups, Kali had to go.

Zoos should not prioritize young animals just because they bring in more zoo-goers and they definitely shouldn’t put down a perfectly healthy animal.

If zoo officials wanted to make room for newer wolves, they should have given Kali to a sanctuary, where she could have lived the rest of her life in relative peace.

Don’t Support Captivity.
