A 12 year old female kangaroo died of its injuries today at a Chinese zoo because adult tourists threw rocks at it in attempt to make it hop.
I’m saddened and angered by this. I think zoos should increase their security so they can catch people doing these things. In the article I read, they said the staff saw the visitors do this but the visitors denied it.
Do you think zoos need more security to prevent more incidents like this happening again?

Wow!!! Thats human nature for you. I wonder what would happen if I threw rocks at kid to make play? Animals are however not as important as humans. But that does not mean we can or should be cruel to animals. They should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe humans are given charge to protect them and they should do so in the best way possible. I do have confession, as a kid I threw rocks at my dog. I was scared of him. I don't remember why I did though. I think I was trying to play with him or get him to move. I don't remember it being like bad, just little rocks and pepples, it was a gravel driveway. I really miss that dog and I was too young to know what I had. I always thought he was chasing me to bite me but my dad said he would have only licked you to death. Oh... Regrets...0

Thoroughly disgusted, but not surprised. The Chinese are some of the biggest animal abusers in the world.1
The Chinese also have really lax and narrow guidelines for the proper care and treatment of animals. Very few species are even protected under their laws. I found this out when I learned about these horrific keepsakes: www.snopes.com/fact-check/chinese-turtle-keyrings/1
