This is what is happening in Surabaya Zoo, a 37 acre zoo in Surabaya, Indonesia. It is said to be the world’s cruelest zoo, with animals dying left and right due to the harsh conditions in which they are put. About 160 pelicans are crammed into one pen; the last giraffe that died in the zoo was reported to have 20 kg (about 40 lbs) of plastic in its stomach, plastic from the trash visitors would throw at the giraffe; a bright macaw is so stressed about living in captivity that it has plucked all of its feathers from its breast; the legs of elephants are chained, resulting in lacerations; animals suffer joint and skin conditions, along with malnutrition and many other conditions, making them susceptible to death. An average of 15 animals die monthly at Surabaya Zoo. The list goes on and on. Right now, as you’re reading this, animals are being abused in this zoo.
