In an open letter to ZooDoo, Natalie Coleman exposes the awful nature of ZooDoo and the animal viewings at the Royal Hobart Show:
Letter to Zoodoo:
Just wondering who, exactly is looking after the animals at the Royal Hobart Show? Namely, the Emu’s? Because they deserve the sack.
They were having things thrown at them, children were jumping fences and screaming in their faces and hitting their cage. I left my own children and shooed them away only to come past 10 mins later to a child yelling at them with his face up against the cage.
It should NOT be up to random strangers to take care of your animals! It is YOUR job and YOUR responsibility! You want to make money off of animals? Then bloody well make sure they are safe and looked after!
This is exactly why i stopped taking my children to Zoodoo. You are wanting to entertain people at the expense of the wellbeing of your animals. You have a massive poster in front of those poor animals with your name on it. Put a worker there instead!
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard and seen animal suffering on the part of ZooDoo or the Hobart Show. If you have anything you’d like to add please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
