Get Sad With This Zoo That Lets You Eat the Animals

Who doesn't like a nice trip to the zoo? Those colorful, rambunctious peacocks are so adorable. The polar bears are so playful and not-at-all dangerous. The lions, tigers and bears (OM!) are an absolute delight. However, do you know what would be better than simply looking at all of those glorious creatures? Eating them! That's what one zoo thinks, anyways.

Langau am Albis, a zoo south of Zurich, loves their animals so much that they are willing to slice them up and have them turned into culinary delights by a team of chefs. Isn't that nice of them? Apparently it's a form of population control, as so many new animals are born in the zoo each year. It also works with that whole 'teaching your children the cruelty of life' thing, if that's your bag.

Don't worry, however. Your beloved rhino isn't being turned into a kebab. The zoo's officials mostly stick with game animals such as deer, featured in the delicate Venison in Cognac Sauce, and boar, who takes a star turn in the aromatic Braised Wild Boar with Mashed Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables. That's something, sort of.
