West Bank Zoo Struggles On After Losses

Your rating: None Average: 5 (2 votes)

In a land of perpetual violence, even the animals are not immune. Several recent deaths at the Qalqiliya Zoo - some attributed to tear gas and gunfire - have led to a macabre sort of "taxidermist's zoo".

The zoo's veterinarian, Dr. Sami Khader, also happens to be a taxidermist, and has mounted their zebra, giraffes, and a growing list of other animals in an effort to help the zoo continue its mission in educating the public.
