Statement by the founder of Feldman Ecopark Alexander Feldman:
«Feldman Ecopark no longer exists. Now this can be said quite definitely. Yesterday and today it was again subjected to massive shelling and bombardment. Infrastructure destroyed, enclosures destroyed. The biggest problem is large predators. Their enclosures miraculously still retain their integrity, but one more shelling – and the lions, tigers, bears, distraught with fear, may be free and go towards Kharkov or to nearby villages. We cannot allow this. There is no solution to the problem today. Our specialists are now considering the possibility of equipping them – at least for some – with temporary housing. Failing that, the only option left to us is to put the predators to sleep. It is unimaginably painful to talk about this, but the main priority now is the lives of people.
We also urgently need to evacuate other animals still remaining on the territory of the Ecopark and surviving animals that can be taken out. To do this, we cannot do without your support.»
