Stop Egypts Private Zoos!

This Petition has been started to close down all the little and big private zoos in egypt. In these "zoos" wild animal are caged under horrible conditions.

The popular prisioner is the lioness Masrya. She is one of thousand animals caged in these privat zoos. "Masrya" is imprisioned in a very small cage along at a big street with lots of traffic every day in the village of Abu Rauwash in Giza Egypt.

She´s been caged without water, food or medical care. Because of this little space she cant move and has to live with her own feces. Another well known "zoo" os along the roadside of the alexandria desert road at a highway restaurant (about hald or last third way from alexandria to cairo, befor the cairo city gate) where apes, desert foxes, horses, penguines and other animals are held. Tourist are stopping on the way back from their day-tours in alexandria and they are shocked.
