Petition to require zoos to have more secure cages & enclosures keeping animals in & people out of them thus preventing accidents.
I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People,
a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your
name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by December 15, 2012,
the White House will review it and respond!
We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama
Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets
enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

Here's some more information about this petition:
Require zoos to have more secure cages & enclosures keeping
animals in & people out of them thus preventing accidents.
Require zoos to have more secure cages & enclosures keeping the
animals in and the people out of them thus preventing accidents. Incidents
and accidents where people have gotten into Animal enclosures or animals have
gotten out of animal enclosures have happened at several zoos around
the world and recently at the Pittsburgh Zoo, resulting in injury and death
to animals and people. Fully enclosed animal enclosures will make such
incidents far less likely if not impossible and will save the lives of both
people and animals. Glass barriers, fences or bars where needed will allow
the public to enjoy and view the animals while keeping the two separate.
This will not only serve public safety but also protect the animals many of
which may be threatened or endangered species.
