Dear MEL Topic Readers,

A zoo is struggling so much that it may have to feed some animals to other animals

Zoo animals need to be fed and cared for even though there are no visitors. Just like the captive elephants in Thailand, a zoo in northern Germany is facing a serious financial crisis as no revenue has been generated from visitors for a month. The zoo is currently operating solely through donations as no financial aid is granted by city or state government as of Apr.15.

In the worst-case scenario, the zoo might have to decide whether to have their animals starve to death slowly or euthanize some of the 700 animals to feed the others.

And this isn’t the only zoo that needs financial and public support to feed and care for zoo animals. Of course, the zookeepers are in the toughest position. They not only worrying about feeding their beloved animals but also losing their jobs.

Read the article and think about what other animals, whether in captivity or in the wild, could face a similar problem because of the pandemic.
