This is the daily life of thousands of animals at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo in Thailand. They are locked up behind bars all day, they are not only lonely, but quite literally living in darkness and deplorable conditions.
Wildlife including tigers, elephants and monkeys are caged in the cramped, dirty cages and shackled with tiny in appalling conditions. They are visibly depressed and are abused. So, numerous residents have alerted to Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT) for help.
“Sadly it is not only the elephants that suffer in this old-fashioned run-down zoo on the outskirts of Bangkok — the welfare standards of all animals housed there are terrible,” the WFFT team said. “These animals are legally traded throughout their long lives and in some instances sold to many different owners.”
The WFFT team has checked out the zoo, and they hope to make progress with this large case. “We are monitoring this situation closely and hope that something will be done,” WFFT said. “We will continue to campaign and fight for animals that languish in tourist attractions around Thailand.”
These sickening photos showing animals locked up behind bars reveal the true horror of Thailand’s zoos. If you want to help the animals at this zoo, you can make a donation to Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand.
