VIDEO: Gaza zoo putting stuffed animals in cages to cut costs


Khan Younis zoo in Gaza is using stuffed animals in its enclosures to help cut the costs.

The animals that die at the zoo are stuffed and embalmed and put back on display.

The owner of the zoo, Mohammed Awaida, said they are doing this because there are not enough live animals left in Gaza following the war with Israel three years ago.

He believes the efforts will help children learn about the animals and taxidermy. The zoo is one of five in the Gaza strip, a densely populated area with 1.6 million people.
