Please also write to your nearest Indonesian embassy or consulate and ask them to do everything possible to strengthen and create better animal protection laws. A list of embassies and consulates can be found here......

My God in heaven. Evil strikes yet again. Is there no end to this? No end at all? I just said with tears that I will be glad when I die--it means getting away from the monsters that call themselves humans.

The zoo needs to be held responsible for this death. It also needs to be closed down.

Noted and signed with sadness. I hate zoos with all my soul, since they´re pathetic prisons for animals that are forced to live in misery for a lifetime! TU

Done, and thanks, Cher. The poor tiger died in horrible conditions, no wonder it lost its will to live. The Zoo should be made responsible for allowing this to happen, and they should take all endangered species out of the zoo and move them to a rehab site and later maybe released back to nature.

Atrocious! Why are zoo officials so stubborn? Fix the problems at the zoo, or give the animals to a proper facility.

Noted and signed - my heart breaks for this poor animal that had to endure this sickening life. I believe he has gone to a better place where he can roam free and away for this despicable race called mankind. I do not go to zoos - EVER!!!!!

Noted and pledge signed - I wish ALL zoo's, circuses and other places that exploit animals for 'entertainment' would close down. And the only way I see this happening is for every individual to boycott them, protest against them and not support them in any way - all those who buy tickets condone this abuse and you are just as guilty for the misery these beautiful wild creatures endure!!

Noted and pledge signed !! Was an "autopsy" done on the one that died ? This could provide an explanation as to why ...... and possibly provide a means of saving the other one ?? Was it just neglect, or an ailment which remained undiagnosed ?? I fear nothing will be resolved, in time to save the remaining tiger - heartbreaking !!! This "zoo" needs CLOSING DOWN and ALL their animals relocating, before more of them fall victim !!!!!
