worst zoo in the world
20 Jul 2005

This Zoo is located in the Belgrade city center, on city property, but the Zoo is private.

Belgrade Zoo was made in year 1936. and it’s the one of the oldest Zoos in Europe, its located on 6 hectares of rocky fortress. This Zoo has approximately 2.000 animals with about 200 species. (more than 7 bears, 2-3 tigers, 2-3 lions, 2 jaguars… elephants, many monkeys, more than 10 wolfs…reptiles…lots of birds… lots of big animals in very small cages…) Animals in this Zoo look so distressed, they do not have enough space, they also show signs of ‘stereotypic behavior’, abnormal behavior that has resulted from years of deprivation (Pacing, Head-bobbing, Neck-twisting, Bar-biting / sucking, Tongue-playing, Coprophagia, Over-grooming, Self-mutilation or abuse – tail biting, leg chewing, head bashing, Circling etc…)
