Petition to help save more Dolphin deaths

Two dolphins are dead after the Connyland themepark in Switzerland allowed a two-day rave to take place just a few yards from their tank.

The pair died agonizing, drawn-out deaths, seizing and foaming at the mouth. Veterinarians now say their deaths were likely caused by the ear-splitting music of the rave and drugs that ravers threw into the dolphins' tank.

Carin Zellerman is an animal activist living in Sweden. After hearing about the tragedy -- and the fact that Connyland ignored protests by local activists who warned a rave would endanger the dolphins -- she decided to start a petition on Change.org to save the remaining dolphins from Connyland's negligence. Please sign Carin's petition calling on Swiss officials to shut down the Connyland dolphinarium where two dolphins died after a rave last month.

Eight dolphins have died at Connyland in the past three years, and a 2010 investigation into alleged violations of Swiss animal welfare laws at Connyland is still pending. Meanwhile, the health of the remaining dolphins at Connyland is slowly deterioriating (due to illness and chemical poisoning as well as claustrophobia that results in depressive behavior and sometimes self-abuse).

The good news is that a global outcry over this disaster is fueling the longstanding domestic movement to get Connyland's dolphin tank -- the last dolphinarium in Switzerland -- shut down. Swiss officials can't ignore this gross violation of animal welfare; they need to know that the world is watching, and that thousands expect them to save Connyland's remaining dolphins.

Please sign Carin's petition to shut down Switzerland's last remaining dolphinarium, where two dolphins were killed last month, and eight have died in the last three years:

Re: Petition to help save more Dolphin deaths

Just signed and tonight my whole family will also sign. It makes me sick to think of these poor creatures living in these or any captive conditions. When will the world sit up and take notice and ban the captivity of animals for performance or sightseeing reasons..sickening!!
