Steps to be taken for zoo animals
This is regarding an article published in Young Observer titled 'Insights into Mirpur Zoo' on January 4. The living conditions of these animals are exacerbating day by day and as a result, the sickness is infecting from cage to cage. These animals are used to live on their own in the wild.
However, human interference made their life unbearable. Soggy and shady environments are unhealthy and potentially fatal for any living animals. Moreover, the attitude towards the appropriation of their duties of the zoo-keepers has endangered the animals even more.
Kanta's state of sickness is apparent and still she is treated so poorly! It is simply unacceptable for any living being to be treated in such a way. Keeping different species together is also unheard of at any zoo in the world. There is only one veterinary doctor for the entire zoo which results the ratio of doctor to animals to be 1:2,150.
To recover the damage and mismanagement of the zoo, the government should ensure proper treatment for the animals, hire a well trained staff for the zoo, and the skilled veterinary staff should also be increased to ensure the good health of the animals. So, I would like to request the authorities through The Daily Observer to take proper steps for the zoo animals and let them live.
