New zoo - or is it another false dawn?

According to a report in Gulf News, we'll soon will be rid of Dubai's disgrace of a zoo.

Dubai Municipality says work on the new one at Dubailand will start in as little as two months and it should be ready by September next year.

Talk about a new zoo has been going on for at least twenty years, so I'm not holding my breath.

Still, none other than the Director of General Projects Department, Rashad Bukhash, is quoted as saying that a consultant has been selected, a contract will be signed in about two weeks and that building will commence in July or August.

The animals and anyone concerned about their welfare will be very happy if, finally, it does happen.
