Over 40 zoo animals evacuated from Gaza

Forty animals including five lions are to be rescued from squalid conditions in the Gaza Strip.
The animals would be taken out of a zoo in the Palestinian enclave and relocated to sanctuaries in Jordan next week, the Four Paws organisation said.

Among the other animals to be taken out are a hyena, monkeys, wolves and porcupines, the organisation said in a statement. Rafah Zoo in southern Gaza confirmed the agreement, saying they weren’t receiving any funds for the animals and couldn’t provide proper care for them in the strip.
