Former director killed four of the zoo’s goats and cooked them for an end-of-year banquet
A former zoo director in Mexico killed four of the zoo’s rare goats and served them at a Christmas party, according to local authorities.
Local officials said in particular that an investigation found that some of the animals at the local zoo in the southern city of Chilpancingo had allegedly been sold, given away or eaten under the orders of then-director Jose Ruben Nava.
In particular, one of the most outrageous accusations against Nava was made by the wildlife director of the state environment department, Fernando Ruiz Gutierrez, who said the former director killed four of the zoo’s goats and cooked them for a banquet at the end of the year.
“These four animals were killed and cooked in the zoo’s facilities. Then they were served as food at the year-end party,” he explained, adding that among other things, this endangered the health of the people who ate them because these animals are not suitable for human consumption.
The state environment department also reported that a zebra was traded for tools while cattle deer were given away under unclear circumstances.
Nava was removed from his post on January 12 after the death of a deer in the park.
