Three lions from Artis Zoo are not going to France anyway. A week ago, the zoo announced that the lions would move. The animals would go to a French zoo. But that move is not going on.
The French animal park says they don‘t want the lions anyway. Why that is so has not been disclosed. The park did say “sorry.”
Why did the lions have to leave?
The lions in Artis would actually get a new stay. But because of Corona, Artis doesn’t have enough money for that. Zoos earn little money at this time. And they need it, because they have to feed the animals every day.
What is about to happen to the lions is not yet clear. Zoo lovers have set up an action to raise money.
