Norwegian zoo feeds Zebra to Tiger in front of visitors

Published on : Friday, April 29, 2016

Norwegian zooThere was outrage as visitors outside the Norwegian zoo were caught unexpected outside the tiger enclosure when they found the animal feeding on another zoo inmate, a Zebra.

 

 

The zoo authorities had apparently left the beheaded Zebra carcass with the tiger. Zoo officials said that they were forced to euthanize the zebra due to surplus pollution in the zoo.

 

 

Parents visiting the zoo with their children were horrified at the sight. Later they posted the images on Facebook and commented the incident was macabre and it had strong impact on their children.

 

However the zoo’s veterinarian defended the park’s action saying that it is natural for animals to eat each other and visitors young and old should not be ignorant to these. They said that it is quite normal for a tiger or a lion to eat their prey. They spend time in tearing their prey with their claws and teeth. This is a natural instinct. This is how nature is and visitors should know that predators eat other animals.

 

In 2014 Copenhagen Zoo was crtiticised for killing a giraffe as it was not able to find an alternative home for the animal. The animals was also dissected publicly in front of a crowd of children then fed to the lions. The Danish zoo has also been accused of the same.
