No matter what #EduardoSerio says, his zoo is below par and no where near the ‘state of the art” facility he boasts that it is. A run down facility which belongs to his family and where he had to build “quarantine” areas which are also used as permanent enclosures to house approx 100 cats in 2.5 acres. The Wild Animal Sanctuary for example, has a centralized compound in the middle of the 720 acres of rolling grasslands, which is used as a receiving area for new rescues. Its specifically designed areas allow animals to recuperate and adjust to their new surroundings. The rehabilitation process for rescued animals begins there with special playgrounds that help prepare animals for living in large acreage habitats. Emoya has one hectare for four cats. One hectare equals 2.47105 acres. #Serio has 2.5 acres for approx 100 cats. Think about this.
Large acreage habitats: #BJWT does NOT have large acreage habitats. The only areas he has is where he films the “prides.” His cats spend the rest of the time in their enclosures. They do NOT roam vasts grasslands or, as he likes to say, the Mexican Serengeti. I have it on good authority. These cats spend 24 hours in these enclosures. Visitors to the Zoo see nothing wrong with this. His minions see nothing wrong with this. Why would they? Their idea of a “sanctuary” is based on #Serio’s gross misrepresentation of his Zoo which is a far cry from the roaming animals in ethical sanctuaries where the habitats closely mimic their own environment. Take note: ethical sanctuaries where animals roam freely and live in peace and tranquility. Not trotted out for ignorant visitors and filming. Nor are infantile cubs ripped away from their mothers, in pretend rescues, to be housed in closets and trotted out for the ignorant B grade celebrities.
