The Cypriot Animalist Party (APC) said on Monday that Cypriot authorities had launched an investigation following the discovery of the bodies of animals preserved from a zoo on a Mediterranean island.

According to photos posted on the APC’s Facebook page on Friday, they were the corpses of kangaroos, a walrus and owls from a zoo in the southern port city of Limassol.

The APC lamented in a statement that “throwing innocent dead animals in the trash (…) is a real scandal” and that the police had promised a “full investigation” into the “crime”.

“Once in a while you put things in the trash like discarded items”

Following the release of the photos, the mayor of Limassol ordered an “immediate and thorough investigation” into the matter, the municipality said.

The APC condemned, “Is it not enough then that they are locked up in sad cages? You (the zoo) do not notice them as you should. That fact must be taken into account. “
