Rangpur zoo losing its attraction
Published: 06:49 PM, 29 April 2018
Though the number of visitors and revenue increased in the Rangpur zoo, the number of animals and birds decreased. Though there are some animals in their hands, they have become ill with food. In Rangpur division, people from Rangpur division have been tired of seeing the same animals and birds in the Rangpur Zoo.
According to Rangpur Zoo sources, the government earn revenue of around Tk 1 crore from Rangpur Zoo every fiscal year. Despite the increase in income, the government has not taken initial steps for its development. Though there is a desire to see the new creatures in this region, they are sceptical that they will see more new animals.
At Rangpur zoo, there are only 2,15 animals of 26 species, including 2 lions, 1 tiger, 1 hippo, 2 crocodiles, 2 oysters, 3 peacocks, 1 bear, 1 keshowari, 1 horse, 1 hanuman. Although there are many animal cages, they are empty.
There is no such service to animals here. There is a complaint, not enough food is provided for the zoo animal. Many animals have become soiled. Due to the lack of food, several animals died on different occasions.
Housewife Sunda Hossain said that on vacation, the family members regularly visit the zoo. If more animals were kept, the beauty of the zoo would increase. It also increased the joy among children.
Journalist Nazmul Islam, who was travelling from Nilphamari, said there are no other animals except the Tiger in the Rangpur zoo. The cage is filled with ordinary birds like doves, pigeons. Meanwhile, the government need to give more attention to improve Rangpur zoo.
Rangpur zoo deputy curator Jasim Uddin said we have been trying hard to bring new animals to the zoo. Letters have been sent to several government offices including Dhaka Zoo.
He said after taking up the responsibility of Rangpur Zoo, he brought a number of animals including Hanuman, Horse, Forest Cat and other animals by contacting local forest department at their own initiative.
On August 14, 1988, the construction work of Rangpur Zoo started on 22.17 acres of land in front of Police Line School and College in the city on August 14, 1988, at a cost of Tk 18 million. On June 14, 1991, it was opened to the public.
