BITOLA'S ZOO ATTACKED BY WOLVES
The Bitola ZOO came under attack of a pack of wolves last night, leaving one ostrich killed, one with a ripped open chest, and one two-month stallion with injury in his back thigh, Makfax news agency reports.
The wounds in the animals have been treated, but it remains uncertain whether they will stay alive.
"The guard noticed the wolves while they were attacking an ostrich. Because the wolves are protected species, he fired several shots in the air to disperse them," said Pece Kalaposki, the manager of the ZOO in Bitola.
The management fears that wolves may come back and attack again the ZOO that houses about 200 animals.
The employees have undertaken a series of measures for their protection. The herbivorous animals are particularly exposed as their quarters are not properly enclosed, so they will be transferred to closed cages.
