No. He just strangled the English language.
Shouldn’t have let them on the rollercoaster
In hindsight, it was a mistake to put the giraffe on the loop de loop.
Seriously though, 30 animals in one year is a lot unless you’re talking about a safari park with a very large number of animals.
didn’t Tayto Park ask for their figures to not be published as it would have a negative affect on people visiting the park?
they asked for them not to be published out of context (which they are being now)
they can give context if they like.
If it was birds with a short life span of 1 -2 yrs it wouldn’t be a big issue, but pigs live a bit longer, meerkats etc live about 12 yrs in captivity. pygmy goats usually last about a decade or so.
tayto park has (or had) 380 animals so it’s around 8%. dublin zoo had a mortality rate of 13% in the same year.
For the Dublin Zoo mortality rate to be directly comparable, we’d have to know more about the average life expectancy for each of the species. If Dublin Zoo has proportionately more animals with shorter life spans, then that would be taken into account.
I’d be interested in seeing a detailed break down for Tayto and Dublin Zoo.
to be fair, the life span of pigs on the park is entirely dependent on the production cycle of smoky bacon flavoured tayto
Birds don’t normally have that short a lifespan; one of the terns lives something like 35 years. They should definitely check Enda’s alibi.
Breaking news: Animals in captivity not immortal.
Enda choked the chicken *audible cough*
Will this slaughter stop the appalling @GenEmigration What I Miss Most About Ireland : Tayto vomit in the Irish Times? Will it f….
Why are they releasing 2016 figures in January 2018? Do they just think no one will notice?
Probably won’t in fairness
