KARACHI: A pair of Bengal Tigers and white lions were finally unveiled to the public during an inauguration ceremony attended by Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) administrator Muhammad Hussain Syed on Tuesday, Express News reported.

Hundreds of people flocked to see the animals, while some of them had taken a day-off from work especially to see them.

The tigers are being kept temporarily at the zoo and will be permanent residents of Safari Park.

The Bengal Tigers had been imported all the way from Belgium.

The zoo draws between 25,000 and 30,000 visitors every Sunday. The number increased over the last year after the zoo’s former chief, Bashir Sadozai, ordered extensive renovations.

However, some facilities are still missing and people don’t seem to know where the toilets are located. There is no proper system for families to find children who excitedly wander off and get lost in the crowd.

A place where a lay-man is struggling to meet both the ends meet and continue with the loaf and bread,but!,the BENGAL AND SIBERIAN TIGERS are getting caged-up in SAFAREE AND GANDHI GARDEN...who would manage to 'comply'with their ROARS of hunger,starving for a wholesome animal to gulp-in down.I have very passionate sympathies for these two species ,may the keeper realize that it is not any a joke but matter of painstaking issue.
