A tiger named Laziz is now free from the Khan Younis Zoo in Palestine, dubbed “The World’s Worst Zoo.” He had been smuggled into the Gaza as a cub in 2007 to make money for the zoo. Atfter three wars and horrible living conditions, he was one of the only survivors at the zoo… and lone tiger. For years he lived in a tiny cage surrounded by bleached bones and mummified animal remains. Why anyone would ever go to this zoo is beyond me.

Unable to feed any of the animals, the zoo owner offered them to animal rights group Four Paws. Laziz and 13 other animals were rescued and will now live out their days in much better conditions. Laziz was the last tiger of Palestine (yesss!), and is now enjoying a life much closer to what he deserves in a sanctuary on the veldt of South Africa. Along with 18 other tigers rescued from similar enclosures, he roams an area 1,000 times the size of his hellish cage inwhich he previously lived.
