Rosa King - Inquest at Huntingdon


A short statement..

As concluded by the jury today, Rosa’s death was a tragic accident. A day doesn’t go past when the staff and management of Hamerton Zoo Park don’t think of her and the loss to her family.

She was an amazing individual who adored Big Cats and was passionate about conservation

What we have been through in the last two years would have challenged any organisation; but due to the strength of our staff, the support of our friends and all our visitors, all our fantastic animals continue to be here as part of various conservation programmes.

Hamerton Zoo Park continues its work and important conservation role and recently, having undergone its statutory inspection, has been granted its latest licence under the Zoo Licencing Act. The Inspection Team commented that they were impressed by “the passion, commitment and pride we have in the Zoo " - and that - "the Zoo’s team demonstrated some truly unique and innovative animal care, that the rest of the zoo community could benefit from”.
