Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said he felt bad after coming to know that in many zoos in Uttar Pradesh lions were not given meat and instead are fed with chicken.

“We are not providing meat to lion… Hope no one says tomorrow that lions should survive by eating palak paneer,” he remarked.

As per reports, there is a shortage of meat for animals in zoos in Uttar Pradesh where the new government is preparing an action plan to close down illegal as well as mechanised slaughter houses.
