    What's ging on in Viennna ? So many animals has died the last past months. After the death of "Mick" and "Mucki", two beloved guinea pigs died in the young age of 3 and 4 month,( killed by crows ! ),now the death of,again,a giraffe. Really sad news, but I ask me,what are they doing in vienna to avoid any more deaths of animals?:(

    Orang-utan Sol had a stillborn early November 2012. It was her first baby. She was mourning several days and carried her baby around with her before she let the keepers take away her dead baby.
