Almost A Dozen Siberian Tigers Die Of Starvation In Zoo
March 12, 2010
The tigers, two more of which were shot dead after the hungry animals attacked zookeepers, were fed only chicken bones, and left in small cages.
The manager of the Shenyang Forest Wild Animal Zoo denies these claims, saying that the animals were well cared for, but contracted a disease through no fault of the zoo’s staff.
The deaths have led to a shocking and sudden decrease, with the starvation deaths occurring over a three month period.
In all, 13 Siberian tigers have died in that zoo, our of only 300 believed to exist worldwide.
