East London animals lovers staged a protest at the East London Zoo on Saturday calling on BCM to improve the conditions of the facility or shut it down. 

The protest organised by Nicol Sprink and Gabrielle Naidoo saw the public voicing their opinions on the conditions of the Zoo.

While they agreed on the educational benefits of having a zoo, the protesters said if BCM can't do anything to improve the conditions they must turn the zoo into a sanctuary and let the animals run free.

Among many things that they complained about was the size of the enclosures and well being of the animals in the facility.

"We will put pressure on the municipality to do what's right for the animals," said Naidoo.
