Animals in Kiev zoo suffer from war: “We must sedate the elephants with tranquilizers”

Besides the human suffering, the war in Ukraine also causes a lot of misery for the animals in the Kiev zoo. Zebras and elephants in particular are constantly suffering from fear and stress due to the bombing and shelling. Heavy fighting in the city even caused a fire to break out last week. “Fortunately, we had that under control quickly,” says director Kirill Trantin. “We are constantly trying to comfort the animals.”
