Life in the Zoo

In a zoo several animals were placed in the wrong living areas. The zookeeper has to put them back where they belong, but has to do so with a minimum number of moves.

There is a gate between each of the animal's living areas and the common area.

Since all animals, except for the donkey, are carnivores, two animals cannot be placed together either in the common area or in any of the living areas.

What is the minimum number of moves that the zookeeper can make to place all animals where they belong?

Describe every move. For example:

Move 1: Tiger into common area.
Move 2: Alligator into lion's area.
