Due to a lack of payment from the Karachi Municipal Corporation (KMC), a contractor in charge of providing food to animals at the Karachi Zoo has halted all deliveries to Karachi Zoo.

A source told ARY News that he Finance department of the KMC has not cleared bills of the contractor since February this year and the contractor today posted a notice at the zoo that he would not be providing the food anymore.

People on social media are asking the city administration to take strict action against the zoo administration, Some even asked to “shut the Karachi zoo immediately.”


In a video posted by a journalist Quatrina Hosain, a lion can be seen in a very poor condition. She tagged the City Administrator Barrister Murtaza Wahab in her post, asking him to take the action against those responsible.
