Byculla Zoo spends 20 crore on empty cages

“The process for getting new animals at the zoo takes time,” an official from the zoo said on the condition of anonymity. “We get the animals in exchange for others. We have to build the facilities for the animals first and then strike a deal with other zoos. The problem is that we currently do not have many excess animals to exchange. Hence, we are facing difficulty in acquiring new animals”

The lion enclosure has been ready for more than two years, and a lion exchange programme was almost confirmed from the Sakkarbaug Zoo, Junagadh, in exchange for zebras from Israel, the official said, adding, “But at the last minute, the approval for zebras was redacted, and the exchange has been stuck ever since. Even now, there is no estimated time of arrival for the lions.” (HT PHOTO)
