Waccatee Zoological Farm in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has a history of not providing animals with good veterinary care. Lila, a tiger living in a cage there, has a medical condition that has caused her to go almost completely bald. Her condition keeps getting worse. She needs to be sent to live in a true sanctuary, where she can get treatment for it and other expert care.
Tigers are amazing animals! While we use GPS or maps to get around, tigers have a great memory and use their sense of direction to travel throughout their territory. They can cross a river 5 miles wide in a matter of minutes, and they enjoy spending hours in water up to their neck on a hot day. All Lila is able to do at Waccatee Zoo is pace back and forth in a small, empty cage.
Let Waccatee Zoo know that you would be thankful if they did the right thing and released the animals who are forced to live there—like Lila the tiger and Lil Trix the baboon—to a true sanctuary, by sending them a handmade Thanksgiving card!
Grab a piece of paper and your favorite colored markers or pencils, and follow these five easy steps to speak up for the animals at Waccatee Zoo:
