Life is difficult enough for animals confined to zoos but for those at the Kiev Zoo, life is unbearable. The zoo was expelled from the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria and has been accused of various violations, such as purchasing medication for deceased apes, illegally selling hyenas, and misallocating funds. In addition, the zoo has been accused of having no basic standards of care and there have been an unusually high number of animal deaths.
Write the director urging all the animals in the Kiev Zoo be relocated to animal sanctuaries where they can live out the rest of their lives peacefully. In addition, if you live near a zoo and find that the conditions for the animals are intolerable, please write to zoo officials requesting better treatment of the animals or their relocation to appropriate sanctuaries.
