I’m sorry that you had to see this pictures, but have you ever heard about the Surabaya Zoo? It’s the biggest zoo in Indonesia and it is, basically, a place for animals to die in the most horrible ways. They don’t have vets, they hardly ever clean the place, staff sells animal’s food, some of them are in really small cages…

You see the giraffe on the picture? It ate 20kg of plastic bags cause it was starving and all there was to eat was garbage. About 25 animals die per month.

The government doesn’t care about the zoo and ONGs have problems to release the animals cause most of them are not in healthy conditions to just go back to their true homes.

SIGN THE PETITION TO SHUT DOWN SURABAYA ZOO! Help to make a change. Reblog it. Post it on all your social medias. Invite your friends to join. Tell everyone you know about it.

“This is the kind of photograph that ends up in history books”

The protests in Ukraine have taken a deadlier turn this week, and one image in particular has captured the Internet’s attention: that of a blood-drenched father and son walking past a Ukrainian officer in riot gear.
Taken by a Reuters freelancer named Vlad Sodel, the photo highlights not only the devastation and violence in Kiev, but also how civilian and government forces have been pitted against each other.
Since the photo was posted online on Tuesday, it has gone viral on Reddit and Twitter, and has gone on to be used at news outlets such as the Atlantic, Business Insider and the New York Daily News to represent the horrors of “Bloody Tuesday.”
So who are the civilians in this photo? Internet sleuths have identified the father as Mykola Kuznetsov, a professor at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. It has not been determined whether Kuznetsov and his son were participating in protests, or whether they were just bystanders caught in the crossfire.Read more | Follow policymic
