I agree to the storage and processing of my personal data. The petitioner can see name and place and forward this information to the recipient. I can withdraw my consent at any time.

We are doing this petition as we want the general public to be able to make contact with cubs up to when they are two months old. Besides, we believe that breeding of exotic animals is important, especially when they are almost extinct.

We agree with the fact that zoos need double fencing, insurance, CCTV cameras and also those people who do not treat animals well need to be fined and if needed also imprisoned.


We believe that tigers and lions should not be neutered as many of them are being close to extinct. Besides that, cubs are bottle fed and thus they are definitely not a danger to the public if contact is made with them during the first two months since when they are born.

Thank you for your support, Anton Cutajar from SGW 2234

    Its so nice for once in a while to see cubs and touch. As long as they are raised with humans I see no harm.
