Let the Woodland Park Zoo know how you feel about repeated insemination

Woodland Park Zoo (WPZ) artificially inseminated Chai for the 60th time.  Inseminated 50 times prior to Hansa’s birth and 9 times since has only yielded miscarriages.  Hansa, Chai’s daughter (conceived with a bull) died of the deadly herpes virus.  Watoto, one of three elephants on display at WPZ, tested positive in 2008 for the same strain of herpes virus that killed Hansa.  There is no cure and WPZ has no infection control in place—in fact Chai could tansmit the virus to her own fetus.  The virus attacks the internal organs causing massive hemorrhaging and a painful, gruesome death.

To even take a chance of causing a defenseless calf such a horrific death is unconscionable and unethical.

Please write a thoughtful and polite, but enraged e-mail to:

Seattle City Council members:,,,,,,,,

Deborah Jensen, WPZ President:,

State Senators Jeanne Kohl-Welles and Ed Murray:,

Here’s the story with the zoo’s press release.  If you want to comment, no log in is required.
