‘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.
