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:
sally.bagshaw@seattle.gov, richard.conlin@seattle.gov, sally.clark@seattle.gov, nick.licata@seattle.gov, bruce.harrell@seattle.gov, tim.burgess@seattle.gov, jean.godden@seattle.gov, mike.obrien@seattle.gov, tom.rasmussen@seattle.gov

Deborah Jensen, WPZ President:
deborah.jensen@zoo.org,

State Senators Jeanne Kohl-Welles and Ed Murray:
kohl_je@leg.wa.gov, Edward.murray@leg.wa.gov

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

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
