Disaster is waiting to happen in Taiping Zoo…what I say so?

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When I vistited Taiping Zoo three years ago, I already observed a big trunk of deadwood is halfly immersed in the middle of pond which is separating the pen and visitors. The zoo keepers have no bother to remove the deadwood.

I was wondering at that time the tigers may jump out from the enclosure by using the deadwood as jumping step.
