PeTA Reports the G.W. Zoo to OSHA in a Deliberate and Vengeful Reputation Assassination Try

Wynnewood, OK -- 04/15/2014 -- PeTA (People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals), Yes that organization that killed 82.4% of the animals it got its hands on last year - (www.petakillsanimals.com) - has turned the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park into OSHA for yet one more attempt to tarnish the name and reputation of the zoo and get their name out in the press to raise money for their own organization using the zoo as a campaign goat.

Read the complaint they filed in order to say the zoo has been in trouble again. What they fail to say however, is they’re the ones dreaming this stuff up, read complaint >>

OSHA inspector’s showed up to investigate PeTA’s complaint and came up with 3 things the park needed to improve (so called violations).

  1. The zoo did not have MSDS sheets on Bleach used to clean with
  2. The zoo did not have MSDA sheets on PineSol used to clean with
  3. The zoo did not have a 300 form on file (which is a list of illnesses/accidents) something you’re supposed to download off the internet but no one tells you this prior to being in business.
  4. Protective barriers for employees during feeding time or shifting time to prevent injuries. (They have us installing expanded metal around the feed shoots to prevent the animals from reaching out and scratching the employee while using the feed shoots and or lock outs).

Pictures of compliance attached.

Is this news worthy? We don’t think so, it’s just a way for PeTA to take yet another stab at a wonderful zoo. This has now cost the zoo $2,400.00 in fines and over $9,000.00 in repairs. The zoo spokesperson, Joe Schreibvogel says, ”It’s funny how an organization can claim they love animals and are worried about the animals at this zoo but continuously cost this zoo more and more money. It gives this place bad press which does nothing but hurt the animals and makes PeTA more money. How does that help these animals?”

Last week Joe Schreibvogel offered publicly to give PeTA 43 Tigers and 10 Bears with the stipulation they had to be cared for by PeTA and could not be put to sleep or pawned off on other sanctuaries and the offer went un noticed.
