Not many people are aware that there is a “mini zoo” in Ipoh. The resident animals are just two ostriches and five deer.

Ipoh mini zoo

1. hello

While I think it’s a good idea to bring animals to the public instead of attracting them to the zoo, in my opinion, the compound of the Veterinary Services Department Perak with a fence as enclosure and a zinc awning for shade, is the worst place for the animals to live.

2. two ostriches

As you know, the weather in Malaysia is extremely unfriendly and I won’t be surprised if one of these animals die of heat stroke one day.
