UPDATE 22 DECEMBER: This event has now been cancelled! Thank you to all who participated in helping the welfare of these penguins.
Taken from a recent email campaign by Freedom for Animals, below is a message about helping penguins that will be exploited in a shopping centre event this Saturday.
Will you please make a complaint to the event organiser, Halifax BID, and ask them to cancel?

TAKE ACTION NOW
Wild animals like penguins need very specific care, habitats and space to be able to live life to the fullest. Penguins used in events like this are exposed to large crowds and noise which are both major stressors for animals.
What’s more, the company supplying these poor penguins is none other than ‘Amazing Animals’ – you may remember when we went undercover to expose their circus-style shows exploiting lions and tigers. They train animals for TV and film, mobile events like this, and are linked to the circus industry.
Wildlife expert Chris Packham and others have spoken out against this company – how can Halifax BID continue to work with them?
