- Dear All
Recent reports in The Shropshire Star suggest that the Zoo being built at Walford College (between Shrewsbury and Oswestry) has been given council support, not just as an animal care centre come zoo, but also as a place where families can take holidays! Imagine monkeys, kept in captivity, so that a college can diversify and make more money!
See: http://www.shropshirestar.com/news/publish/article_12546.shtml and http://www.shropshirestar.com/news/publish/article_13318.shtml for details.
We're very keen to start a campaign against this development. Several people lodged, at the very least, verbal objections with the council following our email last month and clearly these had little effect. If anyone has any ideas, we'll be pleased to hear them! The Captive Animals Protection Society (www.captiveanimals.org) are on the case, and we're waiting for their ideas too.
Walford have an open weekend next weekend. While it would probably be counter-productive to organise a demo at this stage, people may want to visit and see what they can find out. Please be polite.
We will keep you updated of what's going on...watch this space.
