First, I'll give you an explanation. Korea's first modern zoo was Chang-gyeong-won, which was converted Chang-gyeong-gung Palace, the one of the palaces of the Joseon Dynasty, into a zoo and a botanical garden in 1909, when the Japanese Empire forcibly colonized the Joseon Kingdom on the Korean Peninsula. The early and mid 1940s, Japan empire feeling threatened by defeat on World War II, so the Japanese government ordered the killing of large and dangerous animals in zoos. By this order, many animals in Changgyeongwon were dead, and followed by the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, almost all of the rest animals in Changgyeongwon were also dead. However, since 1955, some wealthy people have donated animals to Changgyeongwon, and according to history book about korean zoo history that I have, Namseon Electric Co., Ltd. imported a pair of three-year-old zonkeys from the Netherlands for $2,200, and donated them to Changgyeongwon, and that zonkeys arrived on zoo Jan. 26, 1955. The photo data on that zonkeys did not exist separately, but two years ago, while I was looking for pictures related to the zoo at the Korean government's National Archives, I found one of the pictures taken by South Vietnamese President Ngô Đình Diệm in 1957 when he visited Changgyeongwon and took a picture with an animal believed to be that zonkey. That picture. But I think that zonkey's leg stripes looked more close somalia wild ass's leg stripes. So, I would like to ask for the opinions of the zoochatters. Is the animal in this picture zonkey or somalia wild ass? If the animal in this picture is a real somali wild ass, it will be a huge discovery in the history of Korean zoos.
