Last week a 30 year old Giraffe by the name of Kilwon died at the Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia due to consuming 40 pounds worth of indigestible plastic. This foreign material was caught in his intestines and caused a fatal blockage.

If an animal must be in a zoo, please take care of them. Any zoo that cannot take care of their animals, should be shut down immediately. These animals should be sent to a place where they can be properly taken care of. After all, their lives are in the zookeepers hands.

No animal confined in a zoo should be within 'reaching distance' of inconsumable foreign material! That means a 'flaw' on the part of the humans responsible for their care!!!

this is a zoo. not your typical zoo, which is bad enough. this is a place where every animal is neglected and abused. shut down this piece of crap and form a sanctuary for the animals. homeless people are given shelter. these animals deserve one as well.
