IN Animals ON 21 Feb, 2016
You will not believe that the photos that you are about to see below are from Indonesia's largest zoo - the Surabaya Zoo. The condition in which the animals are kept in the zoo is so pitiful that they will give you goosebumps. And after seeing the condition in which the animals are kept in the zoo, even you will say that this zoo should be shut down with immediate effect.
Check them out.
This is the largest zoo in Indonesia.
The zoo was established in 1916, and has been nicknamed the "Zoo of Death."
The zoo is maintained in such a pathetic condition that it is harmful to animals. It has received several complaints from animal welfare groups because of this. However, it is still in operation.
The maintenance is so crass that even the interiors of the cages look lifeless.
Some animals have also been found with plastic in their stomachs, which are indicative of the deplorable feeding standards.
The exhibits are overpopulated, and are medically unsuitable for the animals.
Many people have been vocal about the need to shut the zoo down.
A Change.org petition to shut down the zoo has gathered almost 700,000 supporters.
Only 300,000 more signatures are needed for the petition to receive recognition.
It's hopeful that the petition will soon find recognition and the zoo will be closed down, and the animals moved to a better location.
