A Chinese zoo has agreed to suspend its policy of allowing visitors to shoot some of its animals.

The zoo, in Dandong, rented out rifles and allowed people into special areas where they could shoot the animals.

It was seen as a unique attraction to bring in more visitors but led to numerous complaints from animal lovers.

Zoo staff defended themselves, saying visitors were only allowed to kill unprotected species.

But they have now agreed to stop letting visitors shoot animals altogether, reports the South China Morning Post, quoting Liaoshen Evening News.
