ArmInfo.On November 1, around 06:00 a.m., a second case of stray dogs penetration was recorded in the territory of the Yerevan Zoo.
According to the press service of the zoo, three mouflons (2 males, 1 males) were killed as a result of the attack.
According to the staff of the Yerevan Zoo, the pack of dogs that entered the park is most likely the same pack that attacked the kangaroo the day before.
To note, three puppies that could not get out of the enclosure were caught and transferred to a sterilization center.
Considering the incidents of the last two days taking place at the Zoo, Deputy Mayor of Yerevan Tigran Virabyan suggested director of the Yerevan zoo Ruben Khachatryan to write a letter of resignation.
It is noted that the proposal was sent after consultations with Yerevan Mayor Hayk Marutyan.
In turn, the administration of the zoo turns to the appropriate structures in order to quickly find and neutralize dogs, given the relevance of the problem and the importance of ensuring public safety.
It is noted that in order to exclude the human factor associated with the penetration of dogs, the Zoo administration also contacted the law enforcement bodies of Armenia to begin a preliminary investigation. To recall, yesterday, at a Yerevan zoo stray dogs attaked three kangaroos. The incident occurred early in the morning and the vets who arrived at the scene were unable to save rare animals. Kangaroo males were donated to Yerevan Zoo by the Chisinau colleagues in June 2018. The males were to "get acquainted" with the females that were expected from Amsterdam in December, with the understandable purpose of breeding.
To recall, since 2011 this is the third case of stray dogs entering the territory of the zoo due to which animals receive, sometimes serious injuries and often die. This is due to the lack of fencing throughout the park, which allows not only dogs, but also foxes exotic animals. The Yerevan Municipality has already taken up this problem and has already begun work on fencing the territory of the park to ensure its safety. However, it is strange that with such extensive work, no one even thought about ensuring the safety of the permanent inhabitants of the Zoo, and a "worthy" fence was not built.
