Signed. I hope someone who cares about animals takes over the zoo or the animals are transported to a good zoo.

This looks fairly typical of zoos in these areas - money spent on people areas and less than minimal standards for the animals. Unless the EU seriously takes this on board nothing will happen because they will not release these animals or improve their conditions. It took us over a year to get one chimp from a zoo in Bulgaria and having travelled 2000 miles to fetch him the Town Council tried to change their minds fortunately a sympathetic Mayor stepped in and overruled them. The problem is massive and so far the EU is not tackling it other than to produce documents outlining the European Directives for Zoo Standards - but in many new Member States they are not enforced.

Noted, signed and shared. Unfortunately, the conditions of the zoos worldwide need much imrovement or even complete revamping. Even within United States, there are many zoos are nothing short of subpar. Also, in other countries, you have to keep in mind, that animal welfare is not of highest importance (of course we know it should be) and other more urgent issues always take place instead, especially in those countries where poverty is more widespread and the state/local budget won't allow for such 'secondary' matters as zoo upkeep.

Hey, dammit. No animals should be abused. If they can't take care of the animals properly, they should give them to another zoo. Or, maybe a committee could be formed in Romania to raise $ to properly support and monitor the animals' welfare.

They should rehome these animals and shut down these outdated zoos, it's heartbreaking to see them in such unnatural conditions. If I had my way there would be no zoo at all only sanctuarys for rescues.
