Chains, starvation and concrete enclosures; it's all happening at the zoo, no matter how much we don't want to believe it's true

It is a good thing to shine a light on Chinese zoos. Since there is more disposable income in the major hubs, people are starting to change their attitude about animals. But in the countryside there still is a different kind of behavior toward animals in zoos.

I feel so bad for the animals that have to endure such suffering in China's zoos. They really are essentially a form of torture for these animals- starving them, mistreating them, chaining them as as the elephants so that they are forced to remain immobile- it is hard to imagine that people could be so cruel to these animals and that the Chinese spectators throw objects at these animals- even rocks, and give these animals more pain than what they are already receiving every day of their lives! How utterly shameful. Aren't there any activists in China that can help these animals and put pressure on the Chinese govt. to improve these horrific zoos?
It's a shame that there isn't a philanthropist out there that could help change such awful conditions for these animals and at least offer a better alternative for these animals!
