State of Palestine: Laziz the tiger and 15 other animals bid farewell to 'world's worst zoo'

The remaining 16 animals from 'the world's worst zoo' Khan Younis Zoo in the Gaza Strip, were loaded onto trucks, in preparation for their departure to Jordan, Wednesday morning. The animals were rescued from the zoo on Tuesday.
Veterinarians belonging to international animal rights organisation the Four Paws will provide first aid for the animals during the trip. All of the animals will be transported by truck to a rescue centre in Jordan, except Laziz the tiger, who is going to be flown to South Africa.
The zoo earned its bad reputation for preserving and mummifying deceased animals to display them amongst their living conspecifics before being closed to the public in 2014 due to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while the animals remained inside, with dozens dying from starvation.
