Nightmare zoo in Indonesia shaken by giraffe death
Giraffe dies with plastic in stomach at Indonesian nightmare zoo full of cramped animals
By The Associated Press

SURABAYA, Indonesia (AP) ' The tigers are emaciated and the 180 pelicans packed so tightly they cannot unfurl their wings without hitting a neighbor. Last week, a giraffe died with a beachball-sized wad of plastic food wrappers in its belly.

That death has thrown new light on the scandalous conditions at Indonesia's largest zoo. Set up nearly a century ago in one the most biologically diverse corners of the planet, it once boasted the most impressive collection in Southeast Asia.
