It’s Called The ‘Zoo Of Death’ And Here’s Why It Needs To Be Shut Down

The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia is called the Zoo of Death, and it mistreats the animals so terribly that they don’t even get basic care, nutrition, or proper living conditions. 25 animals die each month from unnatural causes, and many of the other animals are starving.

The zoo gave a statement recently: “The zoo is not going to close down anytime soon, and the animals cannot be re-homed due to diseases. Cee4life has been supplying diet information, along with enclosure and enrichment.”

“We were able to rescue Melani the tiger and she is doing well. The animals need aid and we are doing everything we can to do that. There are 4 other people coming at the end of April to try and also help.”

You can stay updated on the progress to save these animals and give them your support onFacebook and their website.
