The Zoo in Brasov put up for sale….pot-bellied pigs, horses and nutrias. The cute animals bred too much than they were supposed to and the zoo cannot shelter all of them. It is not the first time critters are sold to ordinary citizens.
According to the Zoo manager, seven to eight pot-bellied pigs will be sold out of the total of 12 specimens, six small-size horses and several nutrias.
“These animals bred more than usual and they don’t have such a great exhibitor value, so we decided to put them for sale. This is not the first time when we sell critters, the law allows us, which is not the case for wilding,” Alin Pinzaru said.
A 30-50-kilo pot-bellied pig costs RON 300-400, a nutria also RON 300, while a horse mounts to RON 800-1,100.
