Stop the Culling of Cats in Jakarta

From Jakarta Animal Aid

Sign the online petition here to help the Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN) stop the culling of cats. People have been told the captured cats are relocated, but they are killed.


Ancol recreation park, Jakarta, is supposed to be a sweet recreation place but is in fact responsible for a lot of animal suffering: at present cats are captured and relocated to the cages at the Jalan Harsono.

After JAAN found out what is truly happening in Ancol, JAAN interviewed various shop owners and visitors throughout Ancol. Only 20% of the people knew that cats were relocated, they said that the cats were brought to ‘ragunan’ where better care is provided. This is untrue.

In fact, the cats are relocated to Jalan Harsono in South Jakarta, the Dinas Peternakan building, where they will be terminated.

Instead, Ancol management could cooperate with NGO’s like JAAN in order to strive for a humane solution. JAAN has offered Ancol this option but they still choose to just continue with the mass culling of the stray cats in Ancol.

Besides that the suffering of the cats who are left to die slowly, starving of hunger and stress and wounds inflicted on each other while caged, this also doesn't provide a solution to the big amount of stray cats in the area. This mass culling will not reduce the stray cat population as other cats will replace the territories of the cats that have been 'removed.' It seems that Ancol has not done its homework and just wants to seek a quick and inhumane way of getting rid of the cats in Ancol area.

JAAN opposes this mass culling and is calling out for a protest. YOU CAN HELP.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
