Described as the “world’s saddest zoo” and a “prison” for animals, the Grandview Mall Ocean World, located in a Chinese shopping mall, is a sad excuse for a wildlife habitat. After a video report by Animals Asia showed the state the animals were living in, thousands of people began to demand its closure. Now, a petition is calling to make this a reality.

The zoo and aquarium houses two white bears, which are said to be polar bear–brown bear hybrids, five walrus calves, six young beluga whales, and two Arctic wolves. All of the animals are kept in tiny enclosures, with no form of stimulation. Opened on January 9, 2016, the Grandview Aquarium has already drawn accusations of neglect. Visitors to the zoo have witnessed belugas swimming in dirty water, a whale shark being confined to a small tank, and a grouper dying.

Life in captivity is no life at all for wild animals, but the scenes at Grandview Mall Ocean World are especially sad. You can help these unfortunate beings by adding your name to a petition to close the zoo, here!

Here's an idea- people should pay on their way out, just like a restaurant. If you didn't like what you saw, don't pay. Better yet, don't go to zoos. They'll be forced to close down if noone gives them money.
