NEWSLINK: Lions, tigers to stroll in natural habitat at city zoo

Soon, you will be able to see the big wild cats roam around freely in their natural habitat in the city. The civic body has drawn up ambitious plans to revamp the Sayajibaug zoo that is one of the most popular destinations here.

The zoo that took off in 1879 is home to several animals and exotic birds brought here from different parts of the country.

“For the first time since the zoo was made during the rule of Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad III, it is being revamped as per the contemporary needs. The idea is to give an open space to the animals and birds and let them live in their natural environs. There won’t be any cages with cramped spaces for the animals and birds in the zoo anymore,” said Dr Vinod Rao, municipal commissioner.
