If you can’t keep them, poison them!

Anbessa Gibi isn’t a well-liked place with most Addis residents, mostly because of its bad odor

but its lion cull and poison story has made it to ‘The Most Popular Stories’ of the BBC news this morning.

 The news is about how the zoo is poisoning a number of cubs each year as it doesn’t have the space or money to look after them.

A little harsh! 

The news  doesn’t say if the zoo people  have thought of other options like asking people  to take some cubs home.

I guess there will be people out there who would be willing to take and own them, despite the threat to thier well being, especially those in the palace with large compounds.

Or I might have guessed wrong, as it is often the case.

    It’s very sad, but these days i beleive any news story coming out from Ethiopia involved killing. It’s a no brainer that the current Govt. don’t care for a human beings let alone for zoo animals. It’s nice to hear the “annoymous” person willing to take and keep them if he/she had enough space. God bless his/her heart.

    It was not only the BBC,many papers in the West carried this story.Why they are making a big fuss about it is clear.They value wild animals more than Africans humans.

    Come off it, Yaya. Who cares about what the west value most?
    What you say tells more about you than them-as if you’ve got some kind of complex.
