We Animals multimedia coordinator Kelly Guerin stumbled across Heavenly Well Lake Park Zoo in Anhui, China, while travelling in 2016. “We heard the sound of a child yelling and banging a stick along a row of metal bars. The noise led us down a small path into a corner of the park guarded by a sleeping ticket man. Behind him, a little boy was shouting at a moon bear in his 10-foot square concrete enclosure, jabbing him through the metal bars with a thick tree branch. This tiny, terrifying place contained rows and rows of captive animals who cowered, paced, or simply lay there as people threw garbage at them.
That was over a year ago, and still the memory of those creatures brings a cold, sinking feeling to my stomach. I have long since gone home, but the animals I documented are still there, trapped in concrete pits. They'll sit there as objects of passing visitor's dull interest until the day they die.” Take action to help close down this zoo: http://bit.ly/2mun3qy
