Painted Donkeys VS. Zebras

What to do when you don’t have a Zebra in your Zoo? That sounds like a children’s book title!


A Lack Of Zebra

Strange news, but true! The Gaza zoo had two Zebras that died from hunger in 2009, and the Zoo could not afford to replace them but they needed the business that was brought in by their exotic animals and so they did what any sane business would do. But not really. They took two donkeys and painted them black and white, and it worked!

Customers loved the animals so much that the zoo actually did quite well. The children nearby had never seen a zebra so they were reportedly delighted by the animals!
