Chinese zoo under fire over inflatable animals


Posted on Tuesday, 5 December, 2017 | Comment icon 8 comments

Attractions at the zoo were rather disappointing. Image Credit: PD - Wiki
Visitors to China's Guishan Zoo found little more than some farm animals and a pen full of inflatable penguins.
The highly unimpressive tourist attraction, which had promised a wide variety of exotic creatures, opened to much criticism when visitors found little more than a tortoise and some roosters.

To make things worse, the advertised 'penguins' turned out to be inflatable toys.

Photographs taken by disgruntled visitors ended up going viral on Chinese social media.

Unsurprisingly, the zoo has since been shut down.

Holy cow... just following some of the other 'related stories' links from that article... It sounds like China has some pretty severe zoo issues over there.

If they also have inflatable zoo keepers I won't be at all surprised

Unsurprisingly, the zoo has since been shut down. Too bad. All they'd had to do to get millions of Americans with cameraswas put "Humane" in front of the name of the zoo.
