Please Improve the Living Conditions of the Animals in This Chinese Zoo

I urge the Zoo director Wei K'ung to feed his animals in the zoo, to keep them humanely and to improve their living conditions, particularly this tigress which obviously is in a very bad condition and close to death.

Signed #34 with this rather long comment:

There is no excuse for such dirty, un-kept enclosures at this zoo. These poor, wild animals should have never been taken out of their natural environments in the first place. What really irks me is you see nothing wrong. Allow me to open your eyes. The picture of this poor, emaciated, tiger is not normal. In spite of claiming the tiger suffers from a digestive disorder. I urge you to call in a vet with an emergency and have him/her do a full scale examination on every single animal there. I also urge you to do away with the concrete floors and allow the animals the freedom to roam about freely on grassy knolls. Here in America we have a special zoo called The Busch Gardens in Florida, where the animals are free to roam the area, stretch their legs outside, drink water from fresh, running, streams; lay under a big shady tree, to nap. They also give the animals treats disguised in edible soccer balls. The animals all have regular vet check ups and receive top-of-the-line care. If China can afford to perform inhumane acts of animal cruelty surely you can find it in your heart and do the humane act of copying The Busch Gardens Zoo and start treating your animals with the respect they so deserve.

This is merely speculation, but perhaps this is not a zoo, it is quite possible that this "zoo" is a front for harvesting wildlife parts. Tiger bones are still used as medicine and it is becoming more difficult to take them from the wild, so, they are essentially "farmed". I would think if this zoo were relying on box office revenue, they would want healthy animals for people to see, the fact that they do not, might lead one to think they are receiving "revenue" through other means. I hope I'm wrong and that something can be done for this poor girl.

This is a truly horrible picture, of such a noble animal. China does not have the best of records in regards to how they treat animals. (including the use of animal parts in tradition medicine)! However, a good vet would probably alleviate this animals suffering, and encourage this beautiful tiger to flourish. It seems to me that requesting a new team to lead this zoo, to improve the condition in which the animals live, would be the best option. Good animal husbandry is what is needed! I call on all who visit this zoo, and everyone to note and sign this petition and also to forward this to as many people you know. May this tiger's suffering be alleviated soon.

Signed and noted with sadness. My heart is breaking for that poor, innocent tigress. So few tigers left in the world and these torturing, sub-human POS's that run the zoo are slowly murdering her. The Chinese have no respect for animals, except pandas which bring in lots of money. They will torture, kill, and eat any animal they can get their filthy hands on. And as for Natalie T.'s post, if she doesn't like what we horrified animal lovers say in our posts, then she should just stay off Care2.

Because there is a law in China that forbids the killing of Tigers,they starve them to death instead.The "parts" being of more value than the magnificent beauty of the living! They are a sick inhumane race,whom we have allowed(through our western greed) to become so wealthy ,that they can do anything with impunity. They practically own Africa too, so with all their corruption ,barring a major disaster, we haven't a hope in hell of stopping this train!

They are a vile, soulless, evil, blackhearted race, the ones that are committing these atrocities toward these poor animals. Btw, Hitler saw everyone, but himself, as subhuman, not just one race. If you really see us, we that speak the TRUTH, as angry keyboard warriors, spewing hatred, maybe you should avoid these blogs.

Absolutely heartbreaking. This incredible and powerful tigress, who should be running free, has had the great misfortune to be trapped in this "zoo." As others have stated, digestive issues or not, this is unacceptable. That would be like me taking in my grandmother who say, has cancer, and just shoving her into a dirty room, with-holding medicine or any proper care/cleanliness, quality of life, because she has cancer. Why bother? Un freakin believable. My heart is broken, absolutely broken for this poor creature. Signed and noted with sadness and thanks.

Maybe because they are sure they are not so they have to prove somehow they are by making all the other animals suffer? About the tigress in the picture: is she ill, in terrible conditions, or dead???? And even if she does have an eating disorder, something must be done; not just acknowledge the fact and let it be!! Would that zoo keeper do that to his own kid? Well, maybe...

Zoo animals are enslaved for our entertainment, especially the traveling zoos where animals are usually kept in small concrete cages with near-constant confinement without being allowed to have appropriate social interaction with their families. Seeing a beautiful creature in those conditions is barbaric inhumanity at it's worse. Wild animals deprived of their natural habit is not anything to be seen or enjoyed.

The sad picture reflects the truth that man is the only animal who captures other animals from their natural habitats, puts them in cages in zoos and then neglects them so often. This is not the first time I'm reading about animal-abuse in zoos. I remember still the sad story of Tania, the elephant. How neglected she was! And Maria, the giraffe had to go through such an inhumane act in the hands of men of zoos. The laws should be more stringent to protect the animals in captivity. PETA, WWF and all ANIMAL-WELFARE organizations worldwide will have to keep a vigil and put more pressure on zoo- authorities, so that the optimum standard is maintained regarding the welfare of animals in zoos.
The tigress shown in this picture, is in an emaciated condition, almost on the verge of death. Why didn't the zoo authority take measures for its treatment? The living condition of animals should definitely be improved. And the animals in the zoos should not be deprived of proper treatments when they fall sick. The picture reflects sheer negligence by the zoo authority.

Patricia Thanks for posting. John Than You for sharing."Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it." –Mark Twain

"The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition or surrounded by a halo. We need a boundless ethic which will include the animals also."

I feel sad and crying when I read and saw the tiger being bony and unhappy. I know the tiger is very hungry but it is sick......I wish the tiger would be transferred to the best zoo now....the place looks very awful in China.

BTW to lump together "the Chinese" or China is inappropriate unless one is simple minded and truly believes the Americans are gun toting idiots and/or the Germans are Nazis and /or the French are frog-eaters etc. etc. etc.

don't get me wrong - i despise Chinese people who torture animals but there are loads of Chinese who fight for animal-rights just like "we" do.

Zoos are inhumane and cruel at best, and monstrous at worst. They are obsolete and should be shut down. To treat an animal like this poor tigress is criminal. She should be rehabilitated if possible and set free!

I do not believe those of us who spoke out with words to the effect, "despising" the country of China and it's people, do not imply all Chinese people, ONLY the ones who commit these heinous acts against animals. Abusers are in all ethnicities, it's just that we've seen here on Care2 a lot of particularly atrocious acts against so many animals by China. Again, it's only the Chinese that commit these horrible acts against animals that I abhor. And ALL abusers, for that matter. Btw, I am not "simple minded", thank you.

Digestive disorder, my foot. There's nothing for this tiger to digest by the looks of it.

Is this zoo a front for a tiger factory, where tigers are used for all sorts of horrible things, like tiger bone wine, tiger penis soup, their skins. This is not the first time I'd be seeing something like this.

Anti-Chinese sentiment can be understood, seeing how many horrible things they do to animals, and their own people. I can see where it's hard not to comment in that vein.

No Patricia, anti-Chinese sentiment is not acceptable. The amount of people on this site who generalize is unbelievable. What about America? Look at the amount of animal abuse that happens there!! But when it comes to the US, everyone is is silent. Racism continues to run rife on here. This too is unbelievable. I'll continue to flag racist comments with the hope that Care2 will do something about it.
