I found a report by P.A.W.S. on the Mumbai Zoo also known as the Jijamata Udyan at Byculla in Mumbai. Though an old one (2006), I looked up pictures on the internet and found that the zoo is still in a sorry state. The animals here seem to be suffering everyday, some injured, some troubled by visitors and others living in small and unhygienic enclosures.
The zoo is managed by the B.M.C. and any animal lover or for that matter anyone with a sane mind will agree that the zoo be shut down and the animals freed from their suffering. There have been regular reports in newspapers about the state the zoo is in but not much has been done about it.
Some of the main problems seen are old, rusty and unsafe enclosures which are often too small for the animals housed in them. Many of the animals are plagued with disorders and diseases mainly skin problems. Some animals like Hyenas who live in packs have been kept in solitary cages leading to boredom and finally resulting in self mutilation. Other animals such as deers and monkeys are also suffer from skin diseases.
