The animals under the care of Lagoon Amusement Park (Farmington, UT) look sickly and unhealthy. Lagoon provides plenty of amusement with rides, games, etc without having to imprison animals for entertainment of humans.
Lagoon Corporation has failed to meet minimal federal standards for the care of animals used in exhibitions as established in the Animal Welfare Act (AWA). The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has cited Lagoon Corporation numerous times for failure to provide veterinary care to sick and dying animals, filthy enclosures, inadequately trained employees, and failure to provide animals with adequate space.
There has been over 18 violations of the Animal Welfare Act given by the USDA. *See http://bit.ly/zUS1nq for USDA reports on the Animal Welfare Act violations.
