Animals suffer under Thailand laws

Weak animal protection legislation prompts complaints by activists and civilians.


    Animals in cramped, hot and smelly conditions have caused some Thai zoo goers to complain of animal mistreatment.

    Although the treatment has people pitying zoo animals, zookeepers have not violated any laws.

    Thailand's lax animal protection legislation makes it difficult for activists to investigate complaints or figure out what exactly is going on within zoos.

    Al Jazeera's Aela Callan reports from Bangkok that some complaints from zoo visitors, however, seem to have had an effect, as the Department of Wildlife investigates one zoo's tigers.
