2,000 canaries free to go to Pairi DaizaSaturday, 16 February 2019 15:04
When animals arrive from a foreign country, they must be quarantined because of risks of disease generation while in transit. But the six shelters designed to accommodate birds in these conditions were all full at the arrival of the 2,000 canaries.
Minister Denis Ducarme was concerned about the birds’ fate, and Pairi Daiza offered to host the birds. An AFSCA inspector visited Friday the Brugelette wildlife park to ensure that the site could accommodate the canaries with all precautions related to their quarantine status. "The report by our inspector is positive," the Agency’s spokesperson announced late Friday afternoon.
AFSCA could not yet say exactly when the animals would arrive in the park, nor if their stay in Pairi Daiza would go beyond the quarantine period, or if the Flemish owner plans to retrieve them.
