The Pata Zoo is located above a shopping center in Bangkok, Thailand and is one of the saddest places in the world.
PETA Asia’s latest investigation shows that the caged animals are in bare, dark cages. Enrichment, e.g. through employment material, there is little or no. The animals are obviously doing badly – such as the orangutan (www.peta.de/orang-utan-sandra-…)
Kat, who has almost nothing available for mental stimulation and who is never even close enough can move.
Or Bua Noi, a gorilla lady who is all alone and has been behind bars since 1983.
In November 2019, activists from PETA Asia held a colorful protest (www.petaasia.com/news/colorful…) in front of the shopping center.
This led to a meeting with the owner of the zoo to discuss the conditions in the zoo and the possibility of taking the animals to a recognized sanctuary.
PETA Asia has offered to transfer all animals to a sanctuary, where they would have trees to climb, grass to roll, and many other animals to play with.
Although the owner has promised open communication to further discuss this matter, PETA Asia has received no response since then. …

My comment: Even under the best of circumstances at the best of zoos, captivity cannot begin to replicate wild animals’ habitats.
Animals are often prevented from doing most of the things that are natural and important to them, like running, roaming, flying, climbing, foraging, choosing a partner, and being with others of their own kind.
Zoos teach people that it is acceptable to interfere with animals and keep them locked up in captivity, where they are bored, cramped, lonely, deprived of all control over their lives, and far from their natural homes.
Zoos often kill the animals when there are “too many” of a particular species.
There are hundreds of cases where animals are starved to near death. Zoo animals are treated like prisoners.
Zoo use animals to make some money out of it.
It is an ugly lie to tell people zoos are educational for the kids or any age person.
We can learn everything about any animal online, we can watch videos, read articles, books and so.
Just like we all know much about dinosaurs even if we never seen them in real.
There is no need to make animals suffer in the name of education or any other reason.
The best education is to teach your kids never to visit a zoo.
My best regards to all, Venus
