Dina Zulfikar Update: Dr. Alaa Morsy - technical office GOVS - said he talked to Dr. Adel El Sayed, Manager of Kafr El Sheikh zoo, about the 3 lions, he was told none is injured now, about the Babar Tiger, he was told she is old 25 years old, normal age Babar Tiger is 17 years. The manager of Kafr El Sheikh zoo said they put her in the outside exhibit sometimes to enjoy the sun, however she is suffering from old age symptoms, and that Egyptian Government does not allow euthanasia. A visit by committee should be made any time (this committee of ours with Dr. Alaa), Khaled Elbarky would also be allowed to visit and inspect anytime the conditions. Did not talk yet about the hippos, but, I assume another visit from Khaled Elbarky who lives there now, would do.
