Borth Wild Animal Kingdom has been granted an extra 42 days to pay their huge tax bill. At a recent online hearing at London's High Court, the zoo was given until 26th August to find the £75,000 it currently owes to HMRC.

It has been revealed that HMRC has previously issued a petition for the zoo's company to be wound up, although there has subsequently been three court hearings on the issue. 

The August date could spell the end of Borth Zoo, which has repeatedly made headlines for the suffering caused to the animals held there.

The notorious zoo is also due at Aberystwyth Magistrates Court on 7th September, which marks the start of their appeal hearing following a closure direction of the zoo's most dangerous animal enclosures, issued by Ceredigion Council earlier this year. This comes after the zoo failed to comply with the conditions of their licence.

In March, Freedom for Animals exposed the horrifying fact that one in five animals had died at the zoo within the space of just a year.

Take action to have Borth Zoo closed for good!
