Rebecca A. Rodriguez, Alycia Barlow and Poo Holmes of Animal Time TV (aka Pacific Animal Society, One Animal World) claim all the money they raised for the supposedly “starving sun bears of Bandung Zoo” was paid in full directly to Bandung Zoo!
Rodriguez raised $53 531 via the GoFundMe and took in additional $12 000 in direct payments to RebRod LLC – a for profit-company owned and operated by Rebecca Rodriguez. A total of $65 531 was donated for the “starving sun bears”.
Has anyone seen the actual proof or any real evidence i.e. A written letter of thanks from Bandung Zoo? Perhaps an official accountancy company who has assessed Rodriguez’s books and done an accounting of all the “receipts” and an independent assessment of RebRod LLC? (Rodriguez funneled all the payments into her privately owned, for-profit company) In fact, has anyone seen any official accounting of the money? The answer is NO!
Bandung Zoo approached the media and the Indonesian Authorities (Police) to arrest Rodriguez who had been fundraising for the Zoo and the sun bears without their permission and had collected all this money but gave nothing to the Zoo. Rodriguez was about to be arrested for fraud when she fled Indonesia.
Just because Rodriguez writes that she donated the funds to Bandung Zoo, doesn’t make it factual. Or evidence. Interestingly Scorpion Wildlife Monitoring Group via their Facebook page on 27 December 2017, also ousted Rebecca Rodriguez for fraud. Scorpion provided Rodriguez with the video of the “starving sun bears” made in May 2016 which they allowed her to use in her GoFundMe campaign and she paid them $2400 for it so why would they also turn on her? Are the public that gullible?
