When Tourists Attack: 9 Crocodiles Stoned to Death at Chinese Zoo

'
Exhibit #1 in the case against condemning animals of any kind to life in a zoo.

'

At best, zoos are institutions of conservation and wildlife education. At worst, they’re abusive prisons that exploit wildlife to make money. But this tale of zoo cruelty out of China is beyond the pale—recently, visitors to a Shenzhen zoo killed nine crocodiles by throwing rocks and garbage into their exhibit.

The incident apparently stemmed from visitors’ dissatisfaction with the hibernating crocodiles. Trying to get the reptiles to move, guests began yelling and spitting at the animals. This behavior quickly escalated into more extreme abuse: trash, stones and random objects were thrown at the sleeping crocodiles. 

The zoo’s staff maintains that it was unable to stop people from hurling things into the crocodile enclosure. It was only later, when zookeepers went to clean the garbage out of the exhibit, that they discovered nine of the 11 crocodiles were dead.

While a violent crowd may seem out of zookeepers’ control, Chinese zoos have faced accusations of negligence before. It seems unlikely that the zoo officials were completely powerless to protect the crocodiles. Even if they were, they could have checked on the animals sooner rather than later&mdashotentially saving some crocodiles from death.

Unfortunately this is not the first time a Chinese zoo has come under fire for careless staff or animal cruelty.
