The problem with zoos
On September 16, a man who visited Manila Zoo uploaded a video of a lion violently convulsing while lying in his enclosure. The video was viewed more than a million times, and comments left on the video incited calls for the zoo’s closure.
While the viral video caused an uproar among Filipino netizens, the zoo’s scandal has only been the most recent since they first opened their doors to the public in 1959.
