The latest episode of a popular Hamas children’s TV show, ‘Tomorrow’s Pioneers,’ features its main character cruelly swinging cats by their tails and throwing stones at caged lions in the Gaza zoo.
The video features a costumed adult playing Nahool the Bee at the zoo, tormenting domestic cats and lions. The lions become so enraged by the abuse that one of them repeatedly tries to attack Nahool. Every time Nahool swings a cat by the tail, an act that can cause permanent physical and behavior problems for the animal, children can be heard bursting into laughter.
