Zebra sends dogs wild!

Our four dogs went wild with papier mâché zebra enrichment.

Keepers got crafty to make the zebra – a natural prey animal of the dog – which they sprayed with an array of tantalizing scents, before adding it the paddock and letting out the siblings – brothers Diallo, Ochi, Gamba and sister, Subira – to find it!

Senior Keeper, Sam Grove, said: “The dogs went absolutely berserk when they saw the zebra, displaying their natural hunting behaviour as they worked as a pack to bring it down.

“They soon tore it into pieces, which they shared out between themselves, with the higher ranking dogs taking the bigger, better pieces first.”

Keepers regularly provide our 1,500 strong exotic animal collection with various enrichment which stimulates and encourages their natural behaviours.
