Delhi: Zoo goes in for the kill to keep its 20 big cats fed

IndiaTimes Tuesday, 28 April 2020
To feed its 20 big cats, the National Zoological Park on Mathura Road is slaughtering two-three buffaloes on its premises after the Ghazipur abattoir shut down following the Covid lockdown. The staff source buffaloes from nearby villages. The zoo cannot substitute red meat with, say, chicken because this will leave the felines protein deficient and cause ailments in the long run.
