The local zoo...highlight
Luckely the zoo hasn't got a large collection.
Apart from a camel , some birds , three sad orang utans , a few probiscus monkeys , a leaf monkey , a casuaris and a cat...
Just one animal I should mention.
THE BELGIAN CHICKENS...
The main attraction if you ask me.
(but of course you didn't)
Some ethics? Can I go to a zoo that doesn't treat his animals to well. If you go , you will support the zoo , by paying admission you give them money to keep on going on....I don't know. We went , and we did mentioned what we where thinking about the cages and so one...It keeps me thinking.

Just adding another picture...to give you an idea how the sunbears are living.
The most amazing story and thing I've ever seen was a cage where they had kept a Python , an otter and a lizard together. The story was that they had a bit off an argument at the beginning , who is going to be boss...but then everything went just fine.
NO , I DIDN'T ASKED WHO WAS BOSS.
Also the probiscus monkeys now staying at the zoo where strong ones. They lived already for a few weeks. Probiscus monkeys have a very strict diet and don't stay alive long in zoos.
The local zoo....
There are always a few things I want to see. And the zoo is one of those things. I think how people treat animals tells a lot about cultural differences.
What do you see when you take a deep look into this youngsters eyes?
Al the animals here are in very small cages build above a dirty smelly creek. They don't get much attention...they where not used to it.
Arround and under the cages appears to be a junkyard. This is an improvement since we use a color slide from the old zoo , where the junk was just in the cage.
Did they had a permit to keep orang utans?
Ofcourse not. Here comes a story about corruption. The three red apes here where owned by the towns meir , police inspector and someone of the law. Since It is still a status symbol to have one.
And the best part is yet to come. We have met the officer of the touristical department in the zoo. He was building a web-page. The zoo appears to be an educational project of the town mayor.
A LONG WAY TO GO....
