Ragunan Zoo has announced that it is monitoring its animals for signs of stress after the zoo remained open for eight consecutive days from June 25 to July 2. The zoo usually closes on Mondays to give the animals a rest and any necessary health treatment.
“The treatment is given as part of our commitment to providing the animals with a healthy and stress-free environment,” zoo spokeswoman Dian Himawati said as reported by wartakota.tribunnews.com on Tuesday.
She said the animals' health and food quality would be monitored and any necessary medical treatment given.
The zoo has 2,080 animals, including mammals, reptiles and fish. Ragunan Zoo is a popular destination during the Idul Fitri holiday. (agn/dic)
