It’s hard to believe, but this zoo actually exists, the Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia mistreats its animals so badly, that it’s been nicknamed the ‘Zoo of Death’. The Surabaya Zoo is the largest in Indonesia, they charge around $1 for people to see these horrors. The poor animals lack nutrition, care and a proper living environment. You would think that the ‘Zoo of Death’ name is a bit extreme.. I’m sure you’ll agree it’s perfectly befitting after seeing the awful photos.
An estimated 25 animals die a MONTH from unnatural causes.
The animals there are starving, especially the carnivores.
Many of them have been emaciated for so long, their bodies can no longer absorb nutrition properly.
They sit on cold concrete, wasting away.
Kliwon the giraffe died with a 40lb wad of plastic the size of a beach ball in its stomach.
The animals who don’t starve to death?
They’re typically euthanized due to other health issues.
One look at the creatures living in this zoo is enough to bring a person to tears.
No matter what your stances are on zoos in general, most people should agree that THIS zoo is an abomination.
And the animals who do die?
They are rumored to have their most valuable body parts sold into the $5 billion per year illegal wildlife trade.
Cee4life has just closed a major online petition to stop the cruelty in the Surabaya Zoo, they have reached 100,000 signatures and have sent a representative to deliver the vitally important petition. You can keep up-to-date on their progress by visiting their Facebook page.
