THE news that Lai Chi Kok Zoo is closing is good news to all who care for the well-being of animals. But no one should breathe a sigh of relief until all the creatures have been found a new home safe from the plates of locals and their perverted culinary whims.

The Cantonese saying ''if it moves eat it'' still holds true for many as it did in the past.

I hope that the relevant authorities will ensure that all the animals are re-located in safe environments and that nothing untoward happens to them.
