“This zoo left me sad and depressed”
Review of Hengyang Zoo

Hengyang Zoo
Reviewed 2 February 2014

I usually love going to a zoo and seeing the animals at play, but this zoo was tiny, I wasn't expecting a large zoo, but my bedroom was bigger than most of the cages. And to see a Tiger in an enclosure the same size as a monkey (smaller than my bedroom) was just awful. Especially for endangered animals, there should be some basic guidelines to be able to keep these animals, I know many people dislike zoos for this reason, but I think for the sake of the preservation of a species, they can play an important role, but there was no preservation, only exploitation here. Many of the enclosures were empty, dirty, no natural environment, just a concrete box with bars and wires so thick you had trouble seeing in anyway.
