What's the latest on Dubai's zoo?

That sickening story in Gulf News about the puppy found hanged and hanging from a window in Satwa had a para about the new animal welfare law that, it says, is in its final stages.

It reminded me that we were told back in May that an official contract for the design of the new zoo in Dubailand was expected to be signed early in June. I've heard nothing about it, have you?

We were also told that "the building work will start in July or August". Again, there's been nothing that I've seen or heard since.

Meanwhile the animals continue to be kept in their appalling tiny prisons.

The two Gulf News stories are here and here.
