The animals are all mistreated. There are 180 Pelicans kept in a volleyball-court sized enclosure.
The staff members are strongly accused of animal trafficking which local police are investigating
All of the animals are either ill or physically disabled
Former staff members have also been accused of poisoning a couple of Jarvan Warthogs as a way to seek revenge on the zoo.
I don't have anything to do with this zoo. I only want someone, anyone to save these beautiful animals and to see this horrible zoo shut down forever. The animals all deserve to be rescued and rehomed. Hopefully a wildlife sanctuary or another zoo (that looks after their animals not matter what!) steps in to save them from the painful and tragic deaths they're likely to experience in this place.
There is a wonderful update on this disgusting zoo. People in animal welfare organisations like Wildlife Calling http://www.wildlifecalling.org.uk/index.php and Cee4life http://www.cee4life.org/cee4life.php have been giving access Not all of it is wonderful, animals are being killed as you will unfortunately read in the following stories. I personally want to thank the amazing Sybelle Foxcroft who is the CEO of Cee4life (Conservation and environmental education 4 life) who has reported these horrific stories during her visit to the Surabaya Zoo.
I unfortunately have the link to one of the stories relating to Michael the lion's hanging. Please be warned this comes with a very graphic picture of this beautiful baby's lifeless body. These images will stay with me for the rest of my life http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/lion-found-hanged-surabaya-zoo-3005127#.Uu2VXIaNmds
