- ❌CLOSE BANDUNG ZOO❌
This is distressing but I need you to see just how awful #BandungZoo
is as they have no animal welfare standards whatsoever. It's all profit-driven.
Last May, this elephant known as Yani was pictured crying as she lay dying after leading a lonely miserable existence in chains at the zoo. She succumbed to illness as the zoo had no veterinary care to save her.
She was a critically endangered Sumatran elephant who was chained up as a spectacle for people to gawk at. She suffered like the animals are suffering at the zoo today.
At the time Bandung Mayor @RidwanKamil
posted this photo to his Instagram saying if the zoo cannot afford to look after the animals properly, they should "seek support"
Well, 8 months have passed and the elephants are still in chains and the sun bears are starving to death so please step up and do something in your capacity as Mayor as lessons have not been learnt #CaptivityKills
. On behalf of my species, I'm so sorry 😞💔 .
