As some of you may know, Zoo Negara was struggling to sustain itself during the MCO due to the lack of visitors and donations that came in during the precarious period. To tackle the issue, the zoo’s management held an “Adopt An Animal” campaign in March in order to raise revenue to maintain the well-being of animals. But after a netizen’s recent disturbing discovery of rats inhabiting the penguin adoption enclosure, Malaysians are thinking twice about their decision to fund their upkeeps.
A Facebook user shared his experience of visiting the zoo on 10 August, where he was shocked to see the unsanitary conditions of the enclosures these animals were kept in. According to the netizen, the adorable penguin species, the Humboldt Penguin, was kept in a dirty environment, and rats were even spotted running across the enclosure!
看见马来西亚的Zoo Negara管理成这样，孤立无援的一只企鹅那绝望的眼神，真的感到很痛心！请你们告诉我，我看见的是不是老鼠？希望管理层会用心管理，不是请员工来睡觉！🔥The Food For Penguin, is anchioves & sardines….erm~ and rat? 😠
“The food for penguins are anchovies & sardines…erm and rats?”, the netizen captioned along with a photoset of pictures clearly showing the rodents scurrying around the penguin’s compound.
Netizens were infuriated at this discovery and began questioning where their donation funds from the program went to:
Hopefully, Zoo Negara will be able to fix this situation soon seeing as the national animal enclosure remains a popular attraction for families and school trips.
