I am in somewhat of a dilemma i was at a local is wildlife falconry centre. where they had a small petting zoo. unfortunately they had 2 piggies and 2 buns sharing an pen/hutch type thing. they apeared to have only 1 bowl and 1 bottle between the 4 of them and after offering the piggies some salad (it said Do Not Feed the Animals) i can only assume they arent getting enough vitamin C. i spoke to the own of the pigs who said they were fully grown (no chance) and that they didnt need special food

So What do I do

May be you could write a letter of complaint or phone your local RSPCA although sadly nothing will be done unless it appears the animals are being neglected and even then, nothing may not get done :(

Similar for GPs.

Your local council issues the licences required and if they do not meet the welfare standards of the council then action can be taken. Sending the eye witness account of your visit there, including pics if you have any, as well as the welfare needs as outlined in the links above to the animal welfare officer for the council should get some results.
