Gaza is also unlivable for animals. Four Paws, an animal rescue organization, transported 40 animals to Jordan from a zoo in Rafah after years of poor keeping conditions. The animals include peacocks, ostriches, wolves, monkeys, squirrels, lions, dogs, cats, foxes, porcupines and a hyena. The lions will go on to South Africa.
