From hearing about lions on the loose in Islamabad to now, an ostrich that escaped from the Zoo in Karachi – it almost makes you wonder as if we live in the wild wild West. Has it not become apparent enough that zoos and private homes are not an adequate place for these animals?
A video surfaced online where a runaway ostrich was spotted – on the streets in Karachi’s Korangi, shocking passengers on the streets. The bird fled a zoo in the area and began running on a main road. It also caused an accident in which one man was injured. However, it was eventually caught and returned to the zoo.

It has become increasingly clear that zoos are NOT the right place for these animals and absolutely NEED to be shut down.
