Shocking? Yep. True? Well, no. However, substitute “orphanage” for “zoo” and “children” for “animals” and you’ve got yourself an appalling story.
I’m not at all a fan of zoos in the first place; I find them to be utterly depressing. While I can’t deny the unfortunate reality of zoos; I do deny any claim that euthanizing these animals due to lack of funding is the appropriate, civilized thing to do.
