Gaza animals find new home following deaths at zoo

Gaza animals find new home following deaths at zooFathy Jomaa, owner of the zoo in Rafah, southern Gaza, blamed bad economic conditions and a decade of Israeli-led blockade on the narrow coastal enclave for leaving him unable to properly feed and care for his animals. Jomaa had come under intense criticism by animal care groups after a series of recent deaths and mishaps. Earlier this year he de-clawed two young lions so that zoo visitors could safely pose for selfies with them.
