Staff at Peña Escrita park said an emotional farewell to Almuñecar tigress Nerea today (Monday, December 14) as she was moved to pastures new.
AFTER almost 10 years at the park, Nerea has headed to the APP Primadomus park where her new foster home awaits her, along with other felines.
Under the watchful eye of veterinarian Antonio Casas, three vehicles of technicians and specialists in wild animals, accompanied the tigress on her journey, after an “emotional goodbye” from her handler.
Vet Casas said as 15-year-old Nerea was being prepared for transportation: “She knows me and knows that there may be some unpleasant performance ahead, but we are going to treat her in the best way possible.
Carer Julio was keen to make sure her new owners catered for her every whim, reminding them “she loves rabbits, shoulder and wild boar, are also among her favourite foods”.
Lions and lionesses were recently relocated from the closing park, which now has just 20 animals.
