🐾IMPORTANT POST🐾 from @christinapascucci
We go straight to the source!!! There’s been so much misinformation flying around, and rumors, that are simply not true. I just interviewed Dakota Semler, owner of @malibusafaris
- I also had LAFD come out here who told me directly these animals are SAFE and in fact if fire flared up again, Captain Silverman said it’s a space they would station their guys because there’s so much clearance and the surrounding area already burned.
The entire @youtube
video is linked in my bio, but I address the following rumors and more:
Didn’t move @a_giraffe_named_stanley
because he wouldn’t be insured off property (FALSE)
2) Stanley’s eyelashes were singed (FALSE) and his nose bleeding
3) There wasn’t an evacuation plan in place (FALSE)
The vet was out here the second the fire was gone and has been here. PLEASE. I’m so disappointed by the hate and threats to this company and all of the social media influencers who jumped to conclusions without investigating themselves. You are well-intentioned, but you’re creating unintended consequences like creating hysteria and making people wanting to try to take a giraffe away on their own, a move that could really hurt him.
Malibu Wines is run by a close family that loves their animals. They had a detailed evacuation plan in place they worked on with @lacountyfd
that says animals should stay if transporting is not possible. Also, they have plenty of food for these animals. This is a family that’s run a ranch for decades. They’ve been through many fires and know what they’re doing. They stored hay in several places so one barn holding it burned but they have hay for at least a week in others. And they can get more if they run out.
We cannot keep being reactive when we see a video or headline that appears to portray a truth, without investigating ourselves or digging further. .
