Justice for Crocodile Stoned to Death at Zoo

Target: Riadh Mouakhar, Environment Minister of Tunisia

Goal: Order the construction of better barriers to protect Belvedere Zoo’s animals from attacks by visitors.

A crocodile was brutally stoned to death by visitors at the Belvedere Zoo, located in Tunis’ Belvedere Park. Sadly, this attack does not appear to be an isolated incident. According to Amor Ennaifer, one of the zoo’s veterinarians, visitors often throw rocks and litter at the animals, especially the lions and hippos.

The zoo is hiring three additional security guards in response to this attack. While this is a step in the right direction, the zoo is still desperately understaffed, and this slight increase in security will do little to prevent animals from being attacked with projectiles. Ask the zoo to consider installing more effective barriers around its most targeted animals’ enclosures to protect these captive animals from malicious visitors.


Dear Honorable Riadh Mouakhar,

Like so many people around the world, I was shocked and horrified to learn of the death of a crocodile by stoning at the Belvedere Zoo in Tunis. This animal’s death was an extreme act of cruelty, and I hope that Tunis law enforcement is doing everything it can to identify and rightfully punish the individuals responsible. However, I also believe that the zoo must take responsibility to prevent tragedies like this from happening in the future.

In response to ongoing complaints about litter and rocks being thrown at animals, I strongly urge the Belvedere Zoo to implement better barriers around its most commonly targeted enclosures. Mesh netting or similar barriers would likely prevent visitors from throwing larger, more dangerous objects, like the rocks that killed the crocodile. Please consider making these changes for the safety of the animals in the zoo’s care.

  1. Nada de barreras!!..nada de rejas!!…el zoo debe ser cerrado…llevar a los animales a su habitat ya!!!!…..firmar esta petición es afirmar y setenciar a los animales al encierro y su posterior muerte…la libertad es justa para todos los seres vivientes del planeta….no estoy de acuerdo…no firmo!!!

    Signed & shared❗

  6. Not the first time?? Where is a petition to shut down the zoo, they know better!!!!

  7. I always look to see where these abuses happen here it is no surprise Tunisia is known for eating DOGS they are ignorant and whoever goes there for a holiday is supporting the crap who torture and harm animals!

  8. Throw these idiot-monsters in jail with SEVERE penalties — I’m convinced, the imbeciles will NEVER repeat their cruelty to animals — the problem is that society tolerates & accepts this sadistic, hateful behavior towards animals — society allows these mentally deficient cowards to abuse & disrespect animals — the vulnerable, innocent animals continue to suffer & die under such lax / non-existent “animal” laws & mores — it’s IMMORAL, UNCONSCIONABLE, CRIMINAL, SHAMEFUL, IRRATIONAL to let this brutality against animals continue.

    This should be unacceptable!! People come to a zoo to see the animals and not to KILL THEM with stones or any other means. What is wrong with you zoo keepers; don’t you know you are their protector and they count on you for their care or I say DO AWAY WITH ZOOS, SHUT THEM DOWN! Now some people want to torture and kill zoo animals! I hope the ones who did this will find their karma right behind them soon!

  10. Those subhumans should be devoured by a crocodile, lion, hippo, ect. Plus, zoos should be shut down!

  11. Nature treats back now monster
    Take responsibility for your cruelty
    Take responsibility for your Being on Earth

  12. They should either hire more staff, install cameras, get more guards, and make the views protected by a wall of 10 layers of glass for the animal enclosures. Or just shut down the zoo.
