Urge USDA to Pull License of Cruel Roadside Zoo

Jambbas Raccoon

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has suspended the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) license of notorious roadside zoo Jambbas Ranch for four months, after having charged it with nearly a dozen violations of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). Jambbas' violations included failure to give adequate veterinary care to two bison who were left to languish with open wounds, a dehydrated rabbit who was too weak to reach a water can, and two emaciated goats, one of whom was found dead. Jambbas has also been ordered to cease and desist from violating the AWA, to exhibit no more than 30 animals, and to pay a fine. The order further prohibits Jambbas from possessing inherently dangerous animals such as big cats and bears as well as primates.

Although the USDA's order is certainly a step in the right direction, it doesn't go far enough. Even since Jambbas was formally charged with numerous violations of the AWA, it has continued to demonstrate total disregard for the animals in its care. Please speak up for the animals who continue to languish at Jambbas by urging Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and USDA General Counsel Ramona E. Romero to ensure that the USDA permanently revokes Jambbas' license and refuses to renew it again.
