The animals of South Korea have been put on a diet after almost 10 years of eating processed foods. At the Seoul Grand Park, the animals have been eating more amounts of food then normal intake per day, so the management has decided to increase the natural food intake and decrease the amount of processed foods. Also adding some exercise programs for the animals.
The management has banned the people from throwing squid snacks and cheese puffs at animals. Some people don’t like calling Seoul Grand Park a Zoo; they call it a prison for animals. It’s a depressing place for animals, especially for the wolfs who are kept in a concrete caged area with no space. People want it to be more like other zoos in the world. If they have a lot of space, they should open it up for the animals.
“Feeding the animals according to the 1998 guidelines made the animals overweight”, said Seon-Deok, member of the animal management team, “Horses, for example, like processed food better than grass, which is what they would be eating in the wild”. The zoo will start cutting down the quantity of processed food for the animals along with some health programs.
