reported by activists in Georgia:

"On the night of 2nd of August animal liberation activists closed all the six gates of Batumi zoo with chains and locks. They also hanged the banner 'Closed for Animal Cruelty' on the fence of the enterprise. It was an action within the bounds of Shut 'Em Down perpetual campaign.

This is a third action of the campaign in Georgia. Previously in Tbilisi the chain meat supermarket was closed in the middle of the day while being functioning and the 'Salamander' shoe shop was shut down on the New Year's night. Both times activists used bicycle locks in their work."
