Gaza animals find new home following deaths at zoo

Five lions, five monkeys, four ostriches, three peacocks, two wolves and a hyena departed Gaza for Jordan, after being rescued from a Gaza zoo where many animals died of starvation and lack of care.The animal welfare group Four Paws international carried out the relocation, which also included dogs, cats, foxes, porcupines and 10 squirrels. Fathy Jomaa, owner of the zoo in Rafah, southern Gaza, blamed bad economic conditions and a decade of Israeli-led blockade on the narrow coastal enclave for leaving him unable to properly feed and care for his animals.But Jomaa had come under intense criticism by animal care groups after a series of recent deaths and mishaps.
