The only zoo in the area, located in Pavlikeni, renewed its licence to work for another 5 years. The place enjoys great interest and in order to continue this positive trend, they have increased their fauna with new inhabitants. The variety of animals is now complemented by albino kangaroos, ostriches, emu and jackals. Besides them, monkeys, deer, bears, foxes, cute Vietnamese piglets, and many more can be seen in the zoo.
The five-month-old deer Rem is the newest addition to the “Four-legged friends” farm-shelter in the village of Hotnitsa. It is a one-of-a-kind place in the Veliko Tarnovo area where animals affected by human intervention or accidents can find care and love. Little Rem became part of the farm family soon after he was born. He was rescued by an elderly woman and then handed over to the shelter’s owners. The fragile four-legged animal would not have survived without the help of its benefactors, and today enjoys enviable living conditions, friends and great attention from visitors of the animal farm.
