MOUNT HOLLY, N.J., Jan. 20 (UPI) — Federal inspectors say they are investigating a zoo in New Jersey where four animals have died since September.
U.S. Agriculture Department investigators say they are checking for possible animal-welfare violations at the Animal Kingdom Zoo in Burlington County's Springfield Township, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Sunday. They are looking into the euthanization of a giraffe and an adult hyena, a hyena cub hit by a car and a sick lemur found dead in its cage.
