Appeal put out to replenish the red pandas’ stocks 

A zoo in East Sussex says it has been inundated with bamboo for its red pandas after putting out an appeal for help earlier this month.

Drusillas Park launched an urgent public appeal for bamboo donations after its red pandas Mulan and Maja munched through more of their bamboo plantation than expected.

The zoo said it received hundreds of deliveries and collections from members of the public who donated bamboo from their gardens. Drusillas is once again fully stocked, to the delight of Mulan and Maja.

Restriction zone lifted at Suffolk chicken farm

A one-kilometre restriction zone around a commercial chicken farm in mid-Suffolk has been lifted, following the completion of surveillance testing for avian influenza H5N3 with negative results.

Some 27,000 birds on the premises were culled after a veterinary surgeon identified the disease while investigating a fall in egg production. Poultry keepers are urged to take action to reduce the risk of disease in their flock by following government advice on biosecurity.
