In a zoo at South Africa, there is a cage which has a sarcastic notice that reads, “The world’s most dangerous animal.” No animal resides inside it, but a mirror where you see yourself.
The zoo is empty, and there is no roar of a lion, no little creatures, and no wild species but only mirrors to show the mightiest animal, hidden behind the human face.
The zoo of Gaza conveys the similar story but in some other way. Khan Younis zoo in the impoverished Gaza strip was founded in 2007 and just after a few years, the park turned into a grave of dead animals. The war between Israel and Hamas in 2008 and disputes between Israel and Palestinian Militants in 2014 forced the people and zoo staff to leave the place. But, animals were left there to starve to death.
The dead animals are still there; their bodies are mummified and put on the display by the founder of the zoo. Now, these soul-free and breathless animals in the zoo need no protection.
They are no more dependent on the humans, The spirit of animals should thank humans for the wars and conflicts and making them free from the ruthless world.
