Tonight Vince welcomes guests JVducki TheNewClassik bonniefarion to discuss GuZoo, a private zoo in Alberta, Canada which was recently the subject of an undercover video depicting graphic images of dirty cages, maggots in a feeding bowl, dead animal carcasses, and more horrors at the facility.
A group called the Council of Concerned Albertans for Animal Welfare and Public Safety (CCAAWPS) posted still photographs of GuZoo on its Facebook page along with a link to the video. GuZoo owner Lynn Gustafson said he has filed a trespassing complaint with RCMP over the video, which was shot on the Canada Day weekend and has been posted on YouTube. GuZoo has been the focus of animal abuse concerns since it opened in 1990. In March 2011 someone posted pictures of a goat with its face covered in blood on Facebook. The Alberta government ordered GuZoo to shut down in 2011 over concerns about animal care, but later reversed its decision.
CCAAWPS says it has filed a complaint with the provincial government over conditions at the zoo. The organization claims the zoo is not following government animal welfare guidelines and must be shut down.
