Jungle, is the place where Animals belong, however, for our entertainment they are kept in places like Zoos, Circus, so that we can feel happy watching them. However, taking care of animals is 10 times difficult than taking care of a man.
However, there is one Zoo which has gone viral on the internet for all the wrong reasons. ‘Zoo from hell’ in Albania has been receiving fathom of criticism from around the world as here animals were found in debilitating conditions.
A few pictures of the animals went viral on the internet and the pictures are very heart-wrenching. One of the most gut-wrenching pictures is that of a lion who is very malnourished and has an infected eye and is cramped inside a cage.
Here, have a look at the picture of Lion :

According to reports, Blendi Klosi, Albania’s Minister of Tourism and Environment, ordered the animals to be rescued after seeing the photos. Also, the photographer revealed :
“All the animals are kept in tiny, unhygienic concrete cages with no possibility to retreat from the elements or from the prying eyes of visitors to the zoo.”
He added :
“The animals suffer from a range of physical and psychological issues caused by the miserable conditions, improper veterinary care and lack of an appropriate diet,”

‘Zoo from Hell’, this privately owned zoo was a home to three adult lions, zebra, several deer, monkeys, a bear, and a malnourished wolf. Ioana Dungler, who heads up Four Paws’ Wild Animals Department revealed the worst conditions of the animals, he revealed :
“Signs of the mental and physical impact of being kept in such abject surroundings can be clearly seen on each of the poor animals at the zoo,”

According to latest updates, Animal welfare organisation FOUR PAWS has recently announced that it was working alongside the Albanian authorities to rescue these animals.
We really hope that the condition of the animals gets well soon.
