Five rescued tigers leave Poznan Zoo and arrive at Spanish rescue centre
After four weeks of loving care and first aid at Poznan Zoo, five of the big cats were strong enough to be transported to AAP Primadomus. On Monday afternoon the tigers arrived in this Spanish branch of AAP Animal Advocacy and Protection. This specialized animal rescue facility is able to offer them all the rest, space and care that they desperately need.
AAP-director David van Gennep supervised the transport from Poznan to Primadomus in Villena, Spain: “If you know what these animals have had to endure, in those far too small cages and crates, without good food and water, you would prefer to never transport them again. But we had to. Our partner Poznan Zoo did an amazing job, but the tigers couldn't stay there. Fortunately we have space in Primadomus for exactly this type of emergency. Merida, Aqua, Toph, Softi and Sanson have come to a beautiful place and we have done everything to make the transport as fast, comfortable and smooth as possible. Extra heating has even been built in the specialized truck for this transport.”
