This Place Needs To Be Shut Down, They Call It The ‘Zoo Of Death’

Apr 02, 2014 |

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.
