Christmas trees served to animals at Berlin zoo

Dinner is served. And there is only one item on the menu - Christmas trees.

The yearly tradition across German zoos regularly attracts additional visitors, who were not in abundance over the last two years due to the pandemic.

The director of the Berlin zoo and animal park, Andreas Knieriem, said that the fir trees were like "sweets" for animals.

And it's not just the elephants who got a delicious post-Christmas treat -- bison, reindeers and Barbary sheep also got to tuck in, visibly delighted with their gift of unsold, fresh Christmas trees.
