A judge has ordered the owners of Cricket Hollow Zoo to explain what happened to some of the animals that went missing from their property.
Earlier this winter, Judge Monica Wittig ordered that the zoo’s exotic animals be removed from the zoo near Manchester due to poor living conditions. Four hundred animals were removed from the property owned by Pam and Tom Sellner, but the Animal Legal Defense Fund says over one hundred animals were missing when they arrived at the zoo and could not be found.
An attorney representing those who sued for the zoo’s closure filed an affidavit requesting a contempt charge.
The judge has set a hearing for February 7th.
