London Zoo welcomes arrival of Indonesian 'demon pigs'

London Zoo has welcomed the arrival of their first “demon pigs” — nicknamed the ugliest pigs on earth.

“Budi has very Lupin-like features while Beth resembles Dobby and just like those famous characters they’ve absolutely won us all over – the way they wag their long stringy tails when they’re happy is a joy to see.”

They have come to the zoo as part of a vital international breeding programme for the species, which are classed as “vulnerable” in the wild due to habitat loss and being hunted for the bushmeat trade.

“They may not be Indonesia’s most photogenic residents, but babirusa do fulfil an important role in the forest’s ecology – turning the soil and spreading seeds as they forage,” said Hannah.

It's really ugly that they're being hunted for bushmeat, what's even uglier is keeping animals captive in a zoo under the guise of 'saving the animal'. :huntyga:

Sanctuaries > Zoos

The Arabian oryx, California condor, Addax, European bison, Golden lion tamarin, Hawaiian goose, Bearded vulture, Northern bald ibis, Corroboree frog, Lord Howe Island stick insect, Panamanian golden frog, Black-footed ferret, Whooping crane, Bali mynah and Przewalski's Wild Horse for instance would all very likely be extinct without zoos. Not to mention all the millions in funds they contribute to preserving them in the wild. 

'Sanctuary' is just what you call it when you wanna keep an animal captive and not let them breed but do it under a prettier name.
