  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

The tigers are emaciated and the 180 pelicans packed so tightly they cannot unfurl their wings without hitting a neighbour. Last week, a giraffe died with a beachball-sized wad of plastic food wrappers in its belly.

That death has focused new attention on the scandalous conditions at Indonesia's largest zoo.Set up nearly a century ago in one the most biologically diverse corners of the planet, it once boasted the most impressive collection in southeast Asia.

Get those animals outta there! That's not a zoo! It's a prison and they don't look like they've been fed!

You'd think that in this day and age we would never allow another Auschwitz, not even for animals. Sadly that is the first thing I thought of when I seen the picture of that Tiger.

So sad.

This is absolutely horrific.  Those poor animals need to be taken out of there now.

I worked in a zoo for years. It's upsetting that places like this exist :(
