I’ve been living in Cebu City for around 16 years now, and I have never been to the Cebu Zoo until today. I have heard that the zoo was not kept very well, in fact it was even closed for some time. But it was re-opened and since my nephew is here in the city, I had the excuse to visit the zoo. The zoo is kind of scary. It seems the animals are not happy there. I am no pro-animal rights activist, and I don’t even like animals, but I thought the zoo, that zoo in particular, was a lonely place to be.
