‘Please don’t stone our animals to death’

A Tunisian zoo that closed after a crocodile was stoned to death has reopened – with new signs instructing visitors not to throw things at the animals.

The Belvedere Zoo in central Tunis shut its gates in March after a public outcry over the animal’s death.

Images shared on social media showed the dead crocodile’s head beside what appeared to be a bloodied paving slab and another large rock.

    A perfect match for Islam, that’s for sure

      Anyone who has spent time in the “real” middle east and north africa is struck by the unrelenting cruelty of most ordinary arabs towards all work and wild animals.

        They’re pissed the animals are smarter than them.

    When Swedish farmer Jessica Wendel complained about her petting zoo animals being kicked and beaten with a stick by a boy, the father kicked a cockerel against a wall and the mother spat in her face.
    Being Sweden, the farmer was accused of racism for having reported them to police, and for saying that the mother didn’t speak Swedish.
