Captive Carnivore Interaction

Captive Carnivore Interaction

Lester speaks to Ashleigh Dore Wildlife in trade programme manager at the endangered wildlife trust

The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) is shocked and saddened that yet another child
has been badly injured while interacting with carnivores at a captive carnivore facility.
For over a decade, the EWT has been calling for an end to tourist interactions with
captive carnivores and, as recently as May 2018, wrote an open letter to then-Minister
of Environmental Affairs, Dr Edna Molewa, lobbying for these kinds of facilities to be
closed down. Our concerns include serious welfare issues, that these facilities offer no
conservation value, and pose risks to public safety.
