You may think that zoos are mostly amazing, because there you can see all sorts of animals from far away lands, sometimes these animals are on the verge of extinction even, but honestly, 90% of zoos have had horrible incidents. Maybe that’s why there are no “good” zoos in the world.
It’s a businesses, that was built and still somehow relies on breeding, buying, and selling animals. I’m not saying that the owners and staff don’t like or care for the animals, but the profit always comes first, instead of the animals’ welfare. This is actually pretty F’d up any way you look at it, because if you don’t visit the zoos the animals will die a hungry death, and if you keep supporting the zoos, they’ll bring in more animals.
Anyway, let me show you some rage-inducing zoo incidents that will make you lose your faith in humanity even more.
The Gaza Zoo painted white stripes on donkeys to make them look like zebras. That’s probably the least horrible thing on this list, however.
Scarborough Sea Life Centre
The Humboldt penguins at Scarborough Sea Life Centre were fed antidepressants because they were miserable. Did it help? I highly doubt it.
A wild gorilla was shot and killed after he escaped from an “award-winning” exhibit at the Dallas Zoo. I know you’ll compare him to Harambe, but not all gorillas are Harambe, ya racist bastard.
