my friends and I were really shocked when we visited the moscow zoo earlier today. some of the compunds are definitely too small for the animals living in there and others were huge. seemed like the compounds were chosen randomly. the crocodiles for example are living in terrariums not much bigger than their own body size.
some of the animals (I can’t remember if it were the wolves or foxes) were so thin, I should have taken pics to show you. in general the animals seemed more ill than healthy to us.
visitors kept feeding the bears with popcorn, threw plastic bottles into the compounds and nobody stopped them from doing that.
there were so many people visiting the zoo, that can‘t be good for these poor animals!
im my opinion animals need space, nature, tranquility and peace and they don‘t have that in this zoo.More
