Thrown lion cubs out at Kyrgyz zoo KXan 36 Daily News

This news was expected by many Kyrgyz people who did not remain indifferent to the fate of two foundlings abandoned in early April at the entrance to the zoo. Early in the morning, the puppies were discovered by a watchman and they immediately reported the finding to the director.

“Thank you for not throwing it somewhere in the mountains, but thinking about bringing it to us,” Saltanat Seitova, director of the Bugu Ene Zoo and director of the public fund for saving wild animals of the same name, told the RG correspondent. . – Probably, the children were given to someone for fun. No thought was given to the fact that these are wild animals and they need special care. And here is the sad result. The lions were in a terrible state. Especially Alechka. She couldn’t walk. Thomas moved with difficulty, dragging his hind legs. Due to improper care and feeding, his metabolism was disturbed, and an acute shortage of calcium in the bones was discovered. Expensive medicines, balanced nutrition and care were required. We decided to seek the help of solidarity Kyrgyz. We talked about sick lion cubs on social media and opened a fundraiser. Many responded, and now we have joy. Our Alechka stood up on her paws. True, it is still uncertain, but we continue the treatment. The question of whether Alya and Thomas will be able to live in the wild after they recover and grow up has yet to be discussed.

Unfortunately, the case of Thomas and Alya is not the first. The lion cubs were dumped or taken to the Karakol Zoo earlier. In 2017, unknown persons left the cub of the king of animals at the entrance of the zoo at night. Another lion cub, Saltanat Seitova, was thrown home.


Good news not only for animals and zoo employees, but also for citizens who are not indifferent to our smaller brothers. The Bugu Ene Public Foundation, together with a specialized company, is preparing a plan for a large-scale renovation of the Karakol Zoo.

The famous Kaliningrad Zoo will provide active assistance in this. Its director Svetlana Sokolova visited Kyrgyzstan at the end of May. According to her, she told the Central Asia bureau of “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the cooperation between the two departments will be carried out in several areas, including scientific research, training of specialists, consultations on legal issues and the introduction of innovative projects. .

“Mother Deer” for those in need

The “Bugu Ene” Zoo, which means “Mother of Deer” in Kyrgyz, has become a refuge for many animals in need.

It was founded in 1987 and is still the only one of its kind in the republic. The specialists take care of the animals and do everything possible to return them to their usual habitat after recovery. This happened in 2018 with a lynx cub caught in a trap, in 2020 with a pelican chick, and in 2021 with a blinded snow leopard who turned to people for help.

One of the last cases occurred in January 2023. Inspectors of the Bishkek and Alamudun district administration of the Ministry of Ecology and Nature Management during the next raid found an exhausted hawk-balaban. The toes of the bird’s left foot were frozen. The vets had to amputate them. It is noteworthy that the bird calmly allowed himself to be stroked and ate from the hands. Experts concluded that the hawk was kept in captivity and will no longer be able to survive in the wild. He is now in rehab.
