Please turn the lights out... by texugo Please turn the lights out... by texugo
Well... The Zoo is in a pretty miserable condition... It broke my heart so see it all but abandoned.

And since our Fucking politicians are too busy filling they're fucking pockets, or trying to fucking stab each others in the back, places like this remain scarssly attended. You can see the poorly painted wall on the background.

...I heard that our government cutted the finnancial support to the Lisbon zoo (which is the oldest in Europe, I might add), and is planning to level the place and sell the terrain, or, build an office building. Which ever is more profittable... It makes me puke.
So, basically, the country is on financial/cultural/social chaos, and the zoo is running on peas...

FUCK THEM ALL!!!!

Holy cow!!!!! How can people do things like that with a clear conscience?!!!!! A lone lightbulb for a Galapagos Tortoise(which is what I'm assuming that is) is a travesty! That animal is probably older than all of the politicians in Lisbon (well, except for the ones that have obviously sold their souls to the devil!)!! :/ I'm very upset now. Poignant picture too.

its frustrating to see this happen everywhere..while people are going all over the world to far away places to save animals..they have to realise that they need to peek in at their neighbourhood zoo too...
the zoo in my city is the biggest in the country...and its more like an amusement park than anything else...and i do not mean this in a good way..if u see the way people behave..its shameful

So true...

They look at the animals more like toys than anything else. And some of the professionals that handle them, should be shot... It's plain old hideous...

And you didn't see it all... For example, in the "boxes" where the spiders and frogs where, there were tools scaterred, boxes everywhere, junk...
