bales - The Flemish minister of animal welfare Ben Weyts, according to the Belgian media, closes Olmen Zoo immediately.
The third largest zoo in the country goes close because the nearly thousand animals are being treated badly.
'Who does not want to feel must feel,' says the minister in De Morgen. Animals can not shelter for the rain, huts are not cleaned properly and rotting daydogs are found in feeders. In addition, houses are often overcrowded.
The site of the zoo does not mention anything about the closure. Online cards can even be ordered.
