A zoo in southern China has been heavily criticised after exhibiting inflatable toys and describing chickens and geese as ‘rare wildlife’.
A newly opened zoo in Yulin, China has come under fire after it housed toys instead of real animals.
The zoo displayed a banner boasting of a “penguin invasion”, only for visitors to find out that they were referring to inflatable penguins.
The few real animals the zoo housed consisted of commonly-found livestock such as chickens and geese.
The zoo described them as ‘rare wildlife’.
The owner claimed the poultry was for consumption and were not part of the attraction.
This is not the first time a zoo in China has caused controversy. In 2013, a zoo in Henan claimed to feature an African lion which turned out to be a Tibetan mastiff dog.
