Tambov Zoo

I am not normally an animal lover. I like animals, but I don’t normally have emotional attachment to them.┬áToday, however, something changed. We went to the Zoo in Tambov. Seeing in what condition the animals were there, kind of bugged me for the first time. Here are a few shots.

Tambov Zoo has been in the international news already, just recently. Back in May 2010 a 4-year old girl was drugged into a cage and molested by a lion, while she tried to feed her. The story even made its way to Australia – read full story here. Guess what – that lion is still there and she looked very angry, she even had a go at us. They put some chicken wire for some extra protection. Here it is. This is the one. The sign says “Dangerous Animal.”
