The Old Bali Blog « A lion named Michael: Another animal dies at the Surabaya 'Zoo of Death'

Surabaya Zoo claims another victim, this time an 18-month-old lion called Michael.

Michael's death wasn't in keeping with the usual endless string of neglect as he was found hung in his cage by a steel cable.

Scores on the doors for the last nine months at the Zoo of Death: a Sumatran tiger, a zebra, an orangutan, a wildebeest, a camel, a jaguar, a Javan deer, a gnu, a barking deer and a Komodo Dragon.

Sounds like a reverse Noah's Ark.

Hey. Maybe he just got fed up with the joint and killed himself.
