Protest Lagoon’s Opening Day

March 31 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Lagoon Amusement Park has one of the most deplorable “zoos” in the country. Nearly 60 wild animals, including tigers, lions, and kangaroos, are crammed inside small wire and cement enclosures, pacing constantly in circles. Over the past few months, we have built relationships with internationally renowned animal protection organizations that specialize in wild animal issues. We found an organization that is willing and able to secure placement at reputable sanctuaries for Lagoon’s big cats, and potentially many more of the wild animals in their shameful wild kingdom ride. Unfortunately, Lagoon refused to meet with us to discuss this option further, and told us they have no intention of retiring their animals. 

We tried to do this the nice way. Now it’s time for action. 

 

Join UARC as we protest Lagoon on their Opening Day for 2018. This is the first step of many to come to pressure Lagoon to end their Wild Animal Kingdom ride and allow us to help send their animals to reputable sanctuaries where they can live out the rest of their lives with the freedom they deserve.

 

DETAILS:
– Meet at 11:00 AM at Ezra T. Clark Park in Farmington (near Lagoon)
– Some signs will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.
– This is a family-friendly event, we encourage you to bring your kids! However, we do recommend leaving dogs at home, as we will be on a busy road and it is not a great environment for them.
– This is a legal demonstration – we will be staying on public sidewalk and not blocking traffic.
