These Animals Were Left to Starve at an Abandoned Zoo

Now, they’re finally getting shown some love and freedom.

An abandoned zoo in Colon, Argentina left all it’s animals to starve. The abandoned zoo has a lot of different animals in it, including lions, tigers, and bears. Each one of them was extremely malnourished. They had no access to food or clean drinking water. Thankfully, rescuers stepped in and decided to do something about it. Now, they’re finally free.

The zoo was located next to a busy soccer stadium. Often times, the animals couldn’t escape the noise and get a moments peace. Not to mention they were so hungry with no access to food.

It took rescuers two years of planning and negotiations before they could save them. Obviously, they must have fed them somehow in order to keep them alive for that long, but it’s clear these animals needed a better living arrangement.

After what felt like forever, they were finally able to transfer the animals out of the abandoned zoo and took them to a new home. The animals were nervous at first, but then they got the hang of freedom. They’re now safe and sound at Wild Animal Sanctuary. We hope they have a wonderful, long, happy life!
