Bobcat death prompts call for closure of Wisconsin zoo

A nationwide animal rights group is calling for Irvine Park Zoo to close its bobcat exhibit.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the zoo is, quote, “plagued with problems from incompetence to neglect, creating a dangerous environment for the bobcats.”

The letter comes after a zookeeper forgot to lock a secured door between the bobcat and cougar cages. One of the two bobcats then wandered into the cougar cage and was killed.

Mayor Hedrington calls the accusations of neglect completely exaggerated and over dramatized.
