They Call This The ‘Zoo Of Death. This Is Exactly Why It Needs To Be Shut Down.

There is a zoo in Indonesia that mistreats its animals so terribly, it’s called the Zoo of Death. The Surabaya Zoo is, quite literally, a living nightmare. It is Indonesia’s largest zoo, charging people about $1.00 to enter and view the horrors inside. The animals there lack basic care, nutrition and proper living conditions. You may think calling it a “zoo of death” or “nightmare zoo” is a bit extreme… Until you see the photos.
