Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo

Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago seems to be the centre of protests by animal welfare activists on an on-going basis.

Conditions for the animals in the zoo must be exceptionally bad as animal deaths are reported regularly. It's a shame, because zoos play an important role in helping endangered animals alive. There must be something wrong at a zoo where 3 monkeys die in one week.

 

I much prefer Fota Wild Life Park here in Cork as the animals have so much more room to roam.

Since October, the zoo's two other elephants, two gorillas, a camel and three langur monkeys have died. The monkeys died this week after being transferred to another exhibit.
