A new petting zoo, where visitors can not only oversee the animals but also communicate with them, appeared in Kyiv. Visitors have an opportunity to feed, pet and event look after the inhabitants of the zoo, Vseprokiev news agency reports.

Unlike the traditional zoo, where animals can only be contemplated, children visiting this zoo can pet animals and be happy, as it’s very important for them to contact with animals, according to the founders of the zoo. Moreover, animals are considered to be a natural antidepressant.

By the way, this is not the first petting zoo in Kyiv. Earlier, a similar project was closed due to inaccessibility to public.
