Cruelty & Neglect at Wilson’s Wild Animal Park Winchester, Virginia

Bear at Wilson's Wild Animal Park

Desperately Hot Bears Caged at Roadside Zoo With No Way to Cool Down

The bears at this zoo are confined to a concrete-floored cage, and their water trough is typically empty, leaving them with no means of cooling off during sweltering weather. One bear was observed eating urine-soaked food, and another repeatedly paced inside the small, barren enclosure—a sign of severe psychological distress.

Help Bears Suffering in the Heat at Wilson’s Wild Animal Park


Bears at Wilson's Wild Animal Park—a roadside zoo in Winchester, Virginia—are confined to a concrete-floored cage, and their water trough is typically empty, leaving them with no means of cooling off during sweltering weather. We need your help to protect these bears from rising temperatures.

PETA recently sent complaints to local, state, and federal authorities requesting that they take action on apparent animal suffering at the roadside zoo, including bears who were seen panting with no means of escaping the heat. One bear was eating water- and urine-soaked food, and another repeatedly paced inside the small, barren enclosure—a sign of severe psychological distress.

The roadside zoo has been repeatedly cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for failing to meet the minimum requirements of the federal Animal Welfare Act. The violations include inadequate caging for dangerous animals, a lack of a veterinary-care program, and failing to provide primates with adequate enrichment. Eyewitnesses also recently observed deer panting in the heat, a goat with nasal discharge, an alpaca with overgrown nails, lynxes and a lion cub confined to enclosures on concrete slabs, a lynx repeatedly pacing, and birds with apparent injuries and missing feathers.
Please urge Wilson's Wild Animal Park to provide these bears with at least natural terrain and an adequate pool to escape the heat and to consider retiring them to a reputable sanctuary.
