Food shortages in the socialist country Venezuela has meant that some sick animals have been “sacrificed” to feed healthier ones.

According to the Miami Herald, even zoo animals are starving.

Raul Julia-Levy — an animal rights activist — is hoping to round up the animals via a massive C-130 Hercules cargo jet and take them to zoos around the world.

“The situation with all the lions and the tigers is something that is beyond reason, and so beyond anything you might think is possible,” he said. “I can’t imagine a place in the world where they let the animals suffer so much.”
