Zoo ordered to stop forcing chimp to spray disinfectant from bicycle

Authorities in the south-east Asian country have demanded staff at Samutprakarn Crocodile Farm and Zoo in Samut Prakan Province cease the activity immediately after the stunt provoked a backlash.

The antibacterial liquid sprayed behind the bicycle while the ape cycled around the grounds, while he was also handed a hose to spray down fences.

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Forcing Cities To Rethink Public Transportation

As parts of Europe and the United States begin to lift coronavirus lockdown restrictions and allow people to go shopping, visit relatives and return to work, public officials are facing a new conundrum: How can people travel safely in crowded cities?

“If we do not respect the precautions, the curve will go up, the deaths will increase and we will have irreversible damage to our economy,” Conte said in a televised address to the nation. “If you love Italy, keep your distance.”
