Close flea market "Safari" exhibit
Ladys Island, SC
Beaufort, SC is one of the most beautiful places in which I have lived, but it is a small town that does not have large exotic cat vets available. This is concerning because a local flea market called Beaufort Liquidation plans to open an indoor flea market with an enclosed "Animal Sanctuary." They plan on having live tigers, zebras, giraffes and currently have a 6 month old lion that is being housed inside a cage with a concrete floor. This is not an animal sanctuary but a means to promote their business. The location of the flea market is very close to the air strip for the Marine Corps Air Station and will subject the animals to undue stress from the jets, with noise levels reaching 85 dB. These animals deserve to be in true sanctuaries where they will be cared for appropriately and have room to roam, not housed in a concrete cage. Please take time to sign my petition to tell the Beaufort City Council to close the Flea Market Animal Safari. The YouTube promotional video link provided by Beaufort Liquidation for public viewing has been removed by the owner in response to the petition. Let's keep it going!
