Mysuru: Due to usage of loudspeakers inside Mysore Zoo premise, the animals and birds inside were put to a lot of hardship.

As part of 125th year celebration of Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens which is also called Mysuru zoo, the zoo authorities had organised a stage programme in the newly constructed Amphitheatre where Chief Minister Siddaramaiah was the chief guest. The loud speakers with more decibels used for more than two hours made life difficult for animals and birds especially the newborn elephant Parvathi which was named by CM and Rhinoceros which was very close to the newly constructed amphitheatre.

The organisers had come out with 8 loudspeakers, four each at either side of the stage. The loud noise irked animals and birds which were found moving uncomfortably.
