More than 100 animals dead in Brazilian Zoo

No votes yet

Over 100 animals were found dead when new owners bought a zoo near Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. Enviromental authorities were brought in, and charges have been laid against the previous owners, who, unsatified with running a zoo, were looking into starting a sex club and may have abandoned the animals up to two months before they sold the property.

The animals represented three quarters of the animals in the zoo, and many of them were endangered species. The new owners have closed the property to try and bring the remaining animals back to health.
