I honestly can’t believe that a place like Brick Lane Zoo is still allowed to operate. It’s in the middle of the East End – just off the busy, noisy and dirty Brick Lane. The cage is cramped and is a far cry from the modern (read: spacious, and as close to the animals natural environment as possible) zoos that I expect in London.
I mean, the tiger itself (apparently named April) looks happy enough and is certainly well fed, but it still just doesn’t seem right.
Not to mention that there is no real safety barrier between the public and the animals, you can just reach in and pet it if you so desired.
When is the London Council or RSPCA going to step in and close this ‘zoo’ down?
