I was saddened to learn that Lagoon Amusement Park has a ride known as the “Wild Animal Kingdom” train ride, where wild animals including tigers, lions, cougars, zebras, warthogs, and kangaroos are kept in small, barren enclosures. Many of the big cats are frequently seen pacing endlessly in their cages, a clear sign of psychological distress. I was also outraged to hear that Lagoon also has violated federal animal welfare laws more than 70 times, including for failing to provide adequate veterinary care and safe enclosures for the animals. Because of your substandard conditions, Lagoon is not even accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
I urge Lagoon to work with Utah Animal Rights Coalition (UARC) to send the animals to reputable wildlife sanctuaries where they can have happier lives in naturalistic habitats. Homes that are measured in square acres, rather than square feet. You could even replace that part of your park with a new, modern animal-free ride that park visitors would actually enjoy.
Lagoon Amusement Park needs a reality check. You are not a zoo. You are an amusement park. Your management’s stubbornness is affecting my decision to visit your amusement park in the future. Until you do the right thing for these animals, you are losing business.
