Zoo ‘out­rage’ over es­caped lynx shooting

Sunday Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

THE zoo that owned the es­caped lynx that was shot dead on the or­ders of the lo­cal coun­cil says it is “dev­as­tated and out­raged”.

Lil­lith – twice the size of a do­mes­tic cat – had been miss­ing since Oc­to­ber 29.

Borth Wild An­i­mal King­dom near Aberys­t­wyth, West Wales, had said the an­i­mal did not pose a threat. But Ceredi­gion Coun­cil an­nounced she had been killed.

The zoo said on Face­book: “The de­ci­sion to kill her was not ours and we in no way agreed to or par­tic­i­pated in the shooting of our baby Lynx. We are truly dev­as­tated and out­raged.”

The coun­cil said pub­lic safety was “paramount”.
