Going to the zoo is one of many ways for people to entertain themselves. Besides that, people also go there for educational purposes or to do research. However, the main purposes of a zoo is to protect wildlife and let all of us understand the importance of nature. There are many exotic animals that bear the chances of dying out in the wild. Therefore, the zoo plays an important role in saving endangered animals. But in Mirpur Zoo, the case is quite ironic. The visitors go there with the expectation to see the fun, playful side of the animals. Sometimes the animals and the birds are forced by the visitors to act in such a way. But the visitors can’t see the actual situation inside the cages. The fear, the hunger, the pain, and the sadness… it seems like the animals are kept as prisoners without committing any crime!
Here is a photo story of such animals in Mirpur Zoo in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The story is not about the carelessness or the poor job done by the zookeepers. It’s about the pain of the animals that are kept in an insufficiently small area or cages, out of their habitat. If people look into their eyes and feel the emotion and expression deep enough, they might hear the silent scream as well.
