Death at the Zoo – Why Zoos Kill Healthy Animals

One day they are still the attraction of the zoo, the next day they end up as food for other zoo animals. What is everyday life in many zoos around the world is incomprehensible for many zoo visitors. That's why zoos don't like to talk about it. German filmmakers have now, for the first time, succeeded in persuading two zoos to deal openly with this difficult subject. The film poses the provocative question of whether it might not make sense for zoo animals to become food animals. The answers are surprising and perhaps even frightening for many Zoo fans.

Book this under the film The Secret of the Forgotten Ruins – How Nature Conquers Habitats, the films are screened in a single block.
