This German Zoo Is Considering Feeding The Animals To Each Other...

Many businesses have had to close until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. And while most focus has been spent on supporting and keeping the restaurants and small shops in business for the long term, some larger institutions are struggling as well...

One in particular, the Neumünster Zoo in Germany.

In a new proposal to stay afloat during the closure, the zoo's director suggested they feed the animals to each other.

“We’ve listed the animals we’ll have to slaughter first​,” Verena Kaspari, director of Neumünster Zoo said.

While she didn't specify which animals are on the list to be slaughtered, it would have to be enough to offset the $200,000 that the zoo has lost just this spring...

“If it comes to it, I’ll have to euthanize animals, rather than let them starve,” Kaspari added. "At the worst, we would have to feed some of the animals to others."

While some zoos and aquariums have been able to offer 'virtual safaris' in order to stay in business, Berlin Zoo spokeswoman Philine Hachmeister noted that the pandemic is also having strong effects on the animals.

"For them now it's really pretty boring, " she said. "They've started to much more actively approach every single person who walks past their enclosure."
