An award-winning animal park accidentally killed some of its exotic birds with rat poison when trying to get rid of vermin.
Drusillas Park near Alfriston has admitted “several” rainbow lorikeets died after eating the poison.
But animal rights campaigners say they have been told up to 22 animals may have been killed by the poison, including crowd favourites a red panda and a meerkat.They haven't. It's bullshit. No pandas died, and the meerkat died of unrelated causes. But since when have these morons ever had any interest in reality?
Thirteen campaigners gathered outside the attraction yesterday in a hastily arranged protest which was overseen at one point by four police officers.
“We had a mixed response from customers. Some were really quite rude and said we were ruining their kids’ day.
“We want Drusillas to make an apology. They have not shown any empathy for those animals.
“Putting down rat poison to kill rats is really not OK. They should find a more humane way such as traps that don’t kill the rat so they could release them somewhere.*speechless*
“They are there to care for animals not to kill them.”The rats aren't exhibits. They are pests.
