Usually a zoo is a place where animals have santuary, food and a place to run around. People come to visit these animals and have a good time.
There is a different kind of zoo in Yemen, and it is an abandoned zoo that is filled with animals that were left to die in the city of Taiz.
These poor animals have not eaten for several weeks, including the lions who were abandoned there. You can see how sick and malnourished they are.
No one seems to know why this zoo is filled with innocent animals and why they were all abandoned. It is believed that the rising tensions in the region led to these animals having to fend for themselves.
