Parken Zoo threatened with closure

Parken Zoo in Eskilstuna has been banned from buying any new animals by the local County Board. The Board says that Parken Zoon needs to improve the conditions for animals at the zoo, or it will be closed.

The zoo has until April 15th to meet the Board's demands, including better enclosures and that the management needs to become better informed about the zoo's work.

Parken Zoo was in the news during Autumn 2012, after TV4 programme Kalla Fakta revealed that dead animals had been kept in the freezers, and that the zoo's boss had lied about transferring rare antelopes to another zoo, when the animals had in fact been killed.
