Zoo Controversy in China

A Zoo Controversy in China

The Taizhou Zoo in Jiangsu, China, has sparked mixed reactions by dyeing the fur of dogs to resemble pandas in a new exhibit.

The zoo, lacking the qualifications to obtain actual pandas, opted for this alternative, drawing inspiration from the internet.

While some visitors found the exhibit enchanting, others criticized it, alleging misleading practices and mistreatment of the dogs.

Officials maintain that the dogs were not harmed, dismissing claims of mistreatment and likening the dyeing process to humans coloring their hair.

The dogs, dyed with pet-safe dyes, continue to be part of the exhibit, attracting a consistent number of visitors.

Previous Controversy

This isn't the first time a zoo in China has faced controversy regarding fake animals. In July, the Hangzhou Zoo in Zhejiang was rumored to have human imposters among its bears. However, officials strongly refuted these claims.
