Animals Saved From The “Worst Zoo In The World”
The Gaza Strip’s Khan Younis Zoo has widely been referred to as the “worst zoo in the world.” Years of war and desolation in the area had left the zoo without enough money to care for its animals. For a time, the zoo even displayed the mummified carcasses of animals that had died while there.
But recently, after the zoo asked for help, Four Paws, an international welfare group, successfully completed an evacuation of all the zoo’s animals, now on their way to more hospitable facilities around the world.
