The tigers are starving, the nearly 200 pelicans can't even unfold their wings, they're so tightly packed in their enclosure.
A giraffe even recently died with a beach ball-sized clump of plastic food wrappers in its stomach.
This is all at Indonesia's largest zoo.
The breeding is uncontrolled, there isn't enough money to take proper care of the animals, and the staff is even allegedly involved in illegal animal trafficking.
A former zoo keeper there said:
"This is extremely tragic, but of course by no means surprising in Indonesia's zoos, given the appalling way they are managed on the whole."
The problem is the zoo fees are less than $2 so they bring in almost no money, and the animals are over crowded and underfed.
That's why the giraffe was eating discarded food wrappers.
Even a few Komodo dragons disappeared last year, most likely sold into the exotic pet trade.
This is absolutely terrible.
Someone needs to step in and do something.
We're looking at you PETA!
