I’m sorry that you had to see this pictures, but have you ever heard about theSurabaya Zoo? It’s the biggest zoo in Indonesia and it is, basically, a place for animals to die in the most horrible ways. They don’t have vets, they hardly ever clean the place, staff sells animal’s food, some of them are in really small cages…
You see the giraffe on the picture? It ate 20kg of plastic bags cause it was starving and all there was to eat was garbage. About 25 animals die per month.
The government doesn’t care about the zoo and ONGs have problems to release the animals cause most of them are not in healthy conditions to just go back to their true homes.

I’m Indonesian and I signed the petition too. Yes it’s all true, i’m not trying to cover anything there’s 5 animal died since the beginning of 2014. They already make the efford to cure sick animals since last year, to the point where Surabaya government take full control from the zoo management. although people has done it’s best, there’s still no significant result. Animal keep dying and probably it’s better to shut it down.
One thing that a bit stings, is that indonesian, in general, all of us was claimed as inhuman and cruel. There’s 20 zoos in Indonesia and except this one, the rest is fine. There’s cases of wildlife animal hunting and smuggling, but it’s hard to control if your country has more than 13.000 islands with total area approximately 1.900.000 km² when half of the population living in one island. Most of us are against animal abuse, of course. Believe me there’s a lot of us feels angry and shameful because of this. It’s not that we don’t feel anything about this and just shrugs it off. Please stop claiming my people like this. We’re also trying to help with the condition here.
