  • CHINA. Hubei Province. Wuhan. A salamander in an enclosure in Wuhan zoo. In many of China's 'second-tier' cities, away from the modern zoos in the megacities of Beijing and Shanghai, hide a plethora of smaller unknown zoos. In these zoos, what can only be described as animal abuse is subtly taking place in the form of deprivation of light, space, sanitation and social contact with other animals. Living in awful conditions, these animals spend there days entertaining tourists who seem oblivious to the animals' plight and squalid existence. 2008.
