Yet again, Karachi Zoo is in the news for poor management, animal neglect, and rampant abuse. This time, the zoo is coming under fire over food shortages for animals and disputes between the former zoo director – who is apparently refusing to vacate his position – and the newly appointed director. Even worse, animals are dying. Visitors have shared that a lioness recently died alone in her enclosure. Then, on April 22, Noor Jehan the elephant died after staff neglected her following a dangerous fall. For years, Animal rights advocates have been begging local authorities in Pakistan to shut down this horrific zoo for good. It is time for officials to finally listen! Please sign this petition now to tell Karachi Municipal Commissioner Syed Shujaat Hussain to shut down Karachi Zoo for good!
