This month, we welcomed four new friends to the park. Honey, Dolores, Daisy and Fernando are Ankole cattle. Originally a breed from Africa, Ankole cattle have very impressive horns, so they’re not hard to spot in their new enclosure in the African section of the drive-through.
The “fab four” arrived with us from Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool, and seem to be settling well into their new home.
Hoof-stock keeper Meg Rollo said:
“Our new arrivals are settling well. In the wild, Ankole cattle like to travel in herds for company and protection, and these four are sticking close together too… or as close as they can with their enormous horns!
