A virtual hell on Earth for animals. The facility is one of the largest in Southeast Asia and quickly dubbed the “zoo of death” by the public after it was reported hundreds of animals die there as a result of neglect and abuse.

Referred to in the media as "the world's cruelest zoo" this place has seen one tragedy after the next in recent years -- from a young lion found hanged in his enclosure and a giraffe with plastic lining her stomach to a tiger fed with meat laced with formaldehyde.

Animals are in appaling conditions. Starving, suffering, dying in the worst locations possible.

For starters , this place has been named the “Zoo of Death”, that alone should be enough to imply what type of environment you’ll be stepping into once attending this zoo. I do NOT and emphasize DO NOT recommend ANYONE to go to this zoo! The hygienic quality of the sanctuaries at the zoo were filthy and disgusting. Not to mention the HORRID conditions of their animals there, they looked starved to the bone and nearly half dead for goodness sake. It was truly a miserable and unnerving experience and not something you should bring you or your family to experience. This place needs to be shut down.
