(FOX NEWS) Grandview Aquarium, described as the ‘world’s saddest zoo,’ continues to draw attention as hundreds of thousands of activists petition its operator to release the animals and close up shop for good.
The aquarium opened inside the Grandview Mall in Guangzhou, China on Jan. 9. It came under fire almost immediately. Critics say the facility provides animals, including two polar bears, with little shelter and reprieve. Animal rights group Animals Asia, for example, has described spectators banging on a polar bear's glass enclosure and shouting at it in order to take selfies.
