Starving Venezuelans Break into Zoo to Eat Rare Horse


Socialism is a curse that should be wished only on a hated enemy.

Just 15 years ago, Venezuela was a rising, thriving, dynamic society.

Today, after 15 years of government central planning, men die in the streets fighting over pennies. People drink dirty water. Hookers sell themselves for food scraps.

Now there is news that a group of starving Venezuelans broke into a zoo and slaughtered a prize horse for food. See here.

“Economists say that strict price controls . . . imposed by Venezuela’s socialist government . . . make it unprofitable for businesses to import or produce food.


“The India Times reported last month that 50 animals have starved to death over the past six months due to food shortages at the same zoo.” See here.
