Venezuela: Zoo Animals Stolen for Food


In desperation mode, Venezuelans turn to zoo animals for food.

The situation in Venezuela has been bad for a while, but things only continue to get worse. In recent reports from Reuters, Venezuelan officials are investigating a string of robberies at the Zulia Metropolitan Zoological Park. This is not the first problem that the country has seen regarding zoo animals, however. Thefts of animals for human consumption has become commonplace, sadly.

From Reuters:

“What we presume is that they (were taken) with the intention of eating them,” Luis Morales, an official for the Zulia division of the National Police, told reporters on Tuesday.

Two collard peccaries were taken in the most recent robbery. The animals resemble a boar with a longer snout. Sadly, this was not the first case of animal robbery for the Venezuelan zoo. Additionally, they have also been dealing with the starvation of animals. Just last year, over 50 animals died of due to lack of food in Venezuelan zoos. Sadly, under President Nicolas Maduro, the trend of poverty is not likely to end in the near future.

Animal thefts are only a symptom of the greater problem in Venezuela.

Socialism has crippled the Venezuelan economy. The usurpation of power by Maduro has only intensified the devastation. There is simply no food in Venezuela. The people are starving and the stealing of the zoo animals is only the beginning. As things continue to decompose in the South American country, it will cost millions of lives. The populous has already devolved into almost third world status.

Despite the devastating scene in Venezuela, the fanatic left clamors for socialism under their figure-head, Bernie Sanders. I would encourage any individual that truly believes that socialism works to go and look at what it has done to a once great nation of Venezuela. All the things that have made America a mighty nation are in direct contention with socialism. The ‘spread the wealth’ model doesn’t make everyone equally wealthy, but rather makes everyone equally poor. The saying goes, eventually you’ll run out of other people’s money. Don’t go down that road, America.
