Crisis hits Venezuela's main zoo, where 50 animals have died of malnutrition this year

Caracas, Venezuela – An emaciated lion whose skin hangs loosely because it hasn’t eaten in days. Elephants, bison and monkeys that have gone hungry because there is no food to feed them.

This is the dire situation at the zoos in Venezuela, where at least 50 animals have died in one zoo the past seven months because of problems related to malnutrition. The country is suffering from a massive food shortage that has left almost the entire country hungry – including its furry animals.

According to Marlene Sifontes, a member of the National Institute of Parks workers union, these are the worst days the Caricuao Zoo has seen in its nearly four decades of operation.

“Animals have gone 15 days without eating anything during some periods. We have registered the death of Vietnamese pigs, tapirs, rabbits, birds, peccaries and porcupines,” Sifontes told Fox News Latino.

One case two weeks ago astonished the community. A beloved dark horse that had been in exhibit for years was attacked in the middle of the night and quartered for meat. The next day staff members found just the head and the mutilated body.

“We imagine that people took it to eat it,” a zoo guide shrugged, when inquired by Fox News Latino.

A few visitors were strolling around the 630-acre zoo last week.

Anabel Conde, who was visiting with her family said she is appalled at the deterioration of the zoo’s facilities.

“We came in January and things have gotten worst,” she said. “We just saw some pigs fighting for the food people threw.”
