Zoo stops feeding live puppies to pythons after uproar (Video)

THE Hebin Park Zoo in Pingdingshan, Henan province, has said it will stop feeding live puppies to its pythons after a video of feeding time set off a backlash online.

It tried to distance itself from the cruel act by saying the practice was carried out by the reptile hall's private owners.

Footage of the feeding shows a puppy inside a snake enclosure, next to a tray containing a juvenile Burmese python.
