A new complaint for Jumbo

Mis à jour le 06 September 2019

We follow Jumbo relentlessly. During the heat wave last June, our investigators found that his jailers had no more consideration for him than usual. Even in the middle of summer, the poor hippopotamus is locked in his trailer for hours. And when you briefly open the door for a moment, you find an empty pool waiting for you!

27th June 2019. At 5:39 pm, Jumbo puts his first foot outside of the day. A very hot sun has been burning in the atmosphere, and he has been locked up all this time in a tin truck with his “bathtub” as the trainer calls it. At this moment, the interior of the car from which we observe him reaches 44°C… We dare not imagine the temperature of the furnace from which he exists …

Outside, the desert ...

Will he be able to cool off? Alas, no. No shade, no mud, no water on the horizon. Oh yes, a pool cover is sometimes stretched out, as we were able to observe a few days later, on July 8th, but it is not filled with water! It’s just a fake gesture of care… And the poor are forced to continue to endure the heat without any area to take refuge. These scenes, bleak and outdated, represent Jumbo’s daily life. Whatever the weather and the day, the Circassians who hold him deny him his most basic needs and make him endure a living hell !

We (re) file a complaint!

While the violence of the Circassians compromised the seizure of Jumbo last February, we remain determined to release him! We continue to diligently monitor and gather the evidence for the charges, our case continues to grow. Based on our last observations, we have just filed a new complaint against the circus where he is being held. There is an urgent need to help Jumbo! And our concern for him is only increasing as we approach the next preannounced heat wave, which will probably not be the last…

Ces circassiens, quelle honte ! Comment peut-on faire de l'argent sur le dos d'un pauvre animal privé de tout ce qui fait sa vie ! Quelle tristesse.

Scandaleux, la France me fait honte !

Tous nos "politiques" n'ont que faire du bien être animal ! c'est honteux car, même s'ils n'ont pas la parole, ils ont les mêmes droits que les humains....qui le sont de moins en moins !

Si jumbo n'était pas un hippopotame, il y a longtemps qu'une opération commando l'aurait délivré de cet enfer !
Au delà du clin d’œil, il est quand même inadmissible que par immobilisme de la chose publique, nous en arrivions à nous mettre hors la loi !
Décidément quels sont ces êtres qui ont bâti ce monde dans lequel nous (sur)vivons ?
