Animals are starving to death in a zoo in South America. The zoo is in Venezuela. And is called Caricuao Zoo.
The situation has occurred over the past six months in the zoo. And it is reported that there are at least 50 animals which are starving to death.
The incident is occurring because of food shortages. Therefore, it is having a terrible affect on the animals which live at the zoo. The animals include several species of big cats, such as Lions and Cheetahs.
But, the situation is also affecting many other animal species at the zoo. Including; pigs, rabbits and birds. Who are reported to have not ate for two weeks.
The food shortage situation is widespread across the country. It is not only affecting the animals of Venezuela. But, the people too. It provides evidence that when we have injustice towards people, we have injustice towards animals.
In other words. If we want to tackle inequality and unfairness towards animals. Then we must tackle inequality and unfairness bestowed upon people. The both are interlinked.
