Residents of Berlin Zoo Given Christmas Trees to Eat

BERLIN – Residents of a zoo in Germany were offered on Friday Christmas trees to play with and to snack on as part of an annual festive treat.

Elephants, monkeys and tigers were among some of the critters at Tierpark Berlin who were invited to join in the fun.

Trees were decorated with treats for their recipients and while some of the animals just played with the trees, the Asian elephants ate them, according to the zoo.

The elephants were seen feasting on the firs and Barbary macaques pulling healthy treats from their branches, hung as “decorations.”

Only unsold Christmas trees from specific sellers are given to the animals, zoo director Andreas Knieriem said. This ensures the trees are suitable for the animals.

Tierpark Berlin is home to some 9,000 animals.
