A Facebook user Li Junhao visited the Negara zoo about two days ago when he saw the miserable situation. He saw rats in the penguin enclosure on August 10 and took a video of it. In the clip, the rats appear to be munching some food from the tray kept for penguins. Junhao posted the pics and videos online, and they went viral. Some questioned how can there be mice inside, given that the temperatures should be low. Penguins survive in naturally lower environments, so the enclosures are specially made, to control the temperature levels. At those temperatures, rats should not be in there.

People were pretty disappointed with what they saw. In fact, some of them commented on their own experience of seeing the sad state of animals in here. Someone noted that, "There are rats, which means it's not cold inside, how bad the living environment of penguins is." Others commented claiming that the zoo is continually asking for donations so where does the money go, if the situation is so wrong! On continuous questioning, the zoo addressed the comments that it is working to address the concerns. It is really a sad state to see, one of the precious and exotic species is being treated so badly in enclosures.
