KARACHI: Videos of a lion in dreadful conditions at the Karachi Zoo have sparked furor and outrage on Twitter, with social media users calling to shut down the zoo ‘immediately’.

According to a private media outlet, a contractor responsible for providing food to animals at Karachi Zoo has barred all supplies over lack of payment from the Karachi Municipal Corporation (KMC).

The media outlet, while quoting sources, reported that the contractor is refusing to provide food items to the administration of Karachi Zoo citing a lack of payment from the municipal authorities.

The sources have claimed that KMC’s finance department has not cleared bills of the contractor since February this year and the contractor today pasted a notice at the zoo that he would not be providing the food anymore.

After the videos of the lion went viral, Pakistani Twitterati has called upon the authorities concerned to take strict action against the zoo administration or “shut the Karachi zoo immediately.”

In a video posted by journalist Quatrina Hosain, a lion can be seen in a miserable condition. She tagged the City Administrator Barrister Murtaza Wahab in her post, asking him to take the action against those responsible.
