In the Berlin Zoo animals fed Christmas trees

Only trees that have not been decorated have been suitable for food.

In the Tierpark Zoo in Berlin, animals were brought in trees as treats that they could not sell. The elephants got young coniferous trees, put up trees with “decorations” from vegetables in the aviary, and tigers with meat “decorations.

The zoo accepts only fresh trees from trusted suppliers, while in the park they ensure that the trees brought before have not been decorated – otherwise they may contain residues of toys and chemicals.
