 Zoo faces charges for selling animals as food BERLIN (Reuters) – A mayor in eastern Germany has filed charges against workers at his local zoo for shooting animals and selling them as meat.

A spokeswoman for the mayor’s office said deer were among the animals killed and sold by workers at Erfurt Zoo without permission over a number of years. Full on Yahoo news

When I read above news, it reminds me Yangon Zoo where I visited 20 years previously. I was early teenager. I expected there would be fantastic and interesting animals I could see if I got to Yangon Zoo. Absolutely wrong. I remeber clearly moneys were too thin and emaciated,  and they appeared so hungry. A monkey was biting an old umbrella while asking visitors for food. Elephants were tied with iron chains, no chance to walk. Since then I never go to Zoos. Animal jails.
