The Pretoria Zoo has released a statement following claims that its animals live in poor conditions and there is no clean drinking water.
Facebook user Therese De Lange recently visited the Pretoria Zoo and shared her experience on the social media platform.
According to De Lange, the zoo is in a disappointing state and is “very bad”.
She even shared images of the facility.
The images have left many users shook.
De Lange complained about the facility looking abandoned and that there are only a few animals in cages.
She even complained about a lack of water in cages.
The Pretoria Zoo released a statement on Facebook. It denied some of the allegations made by the social media users.
It says all animals have access to fresh drinking water and the zoo has received substantial infrastructure funding that will allow it to start upgrading a lot of the habitats and visitor areas.
