“Like the rest of the country, we did not survive,” said spokesman Sven Watty. “Friday evening, a tree fell on the cage of a black stork. The bird stayed there alone. It managed to escape and landed on Saturday in the area where our lions live. The hunting instincts of these predators showed up and they killed and ate the stork.”
Pictures of a stork being caught and devoured have been shared in Facebook† Attention, they are tough.
There was other physical damage to the park, but it was limited. Watty said: “There were no other ‘victims’. We had the most problems on Friday evening. We will be monitoring the situation closely throughout the weekend. The park was never closed and will remain open now.”
The black stork is an endangered species. It suffers mainly from the cutting of forests and the drying up of the swampy areas in which it lives. The animals breed in southeastern Siberia, northeastern China, and winter in southeastern and eastern China. Some storks also winter in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. They mainly eat fish, but they also eat insects, amphibians, snakes, small mammals, and small birds.
