Pata Zoo (Thai: สวนสัตว์พาต้า) is a small private zoo on the 6th and 7th floors of Pata Pinklao Department Store, Bang Yi Khan Subdistrict, Bang Phlat District, Bangkok near Borommaratchachonnani and Arun Amarin Intersections with Phra Pinklao Bridge. Pata Zoo has operated since the beginning of 1983, along with the department store. For years it has been the focus of Thai animal rights activists who charge the zoo with inhumane treatment of animals.Plan a trip to Bangkok easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
Pata Zoo Reviews
Please send the animals to a conservation group. They are unhappy and starving. The pata mall is mostly abandoned and desolate, everyone forgets there is a zoo there and the animals are suffering. more »
horrific cruel and should be shut down!!! the animals are in terrible condition, forced to perform for food, dressed up and abused.... The poor gorilla is all by herself and desperate for affection..... more »
Inhumane. No way they are making as much money as they say they are to keep animals in good condition. I am not in support of zoos period, but a zoo should at least have the decency to evaluate whether or not they can support their animals health and concede to closure in cases like this.
SHUT IT DOWN. INHUMANE! BUA-NOI (gorilla) WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RELEASED INTO THE WILD 4 YEARS AGO. ANYONE SUPPORTING THIS ZOO IS SUPPORTING ANIMAL ABUSE AND NEGLECT. Look at your thai childen to see a gorilla.
