Animal Law

Video of the Day: Gaza Zoo Victims

I can’t stop crying. The video, linked below, details the horrifying, upsetting, and emotionally devastating reality of some of the nonhuman animal victims of the Israel/Palestine conflict.

Abu Sameer, the zoo’s chief veterinarian, told CNN that up to 10 monkeys have been killed along with a peacock, a gazelle, a lion, and a fox.

I don’t think I even knew that there was a Gaza Zoo, but to think of the the death and suffering these animals have endured…

While the video is painful, please watch it, and please spread awareness.
