The Poznan Zoo has announced a fundraiser for equipping a quarantine and rehabilitation site needed to restore animals.
According to Gazeta Wyborcza, the Polish branch of the World Wildlife Fund has also joined in solving the problem.
Recall for the first time about the problem with animals it became known on October 25, when the media got information that a truck was transported at the Kozlovichi checkpoint on the Polish-Belarusian border, which transported 10 tigers in cages.
The animals left Italy on October 22 and were supposed to be delivered to Russia.
On the Polish-Belarusian border, the Italians accompanying the cargo had problems with Belarusian visas.
Italian citizens remained in Poland and did not continue to accompany the living "cargo".
The Russian driver on the morning of October 26 again went to Belarus, but there were problems with veterinary certificates.
Then the experts of the Poznan Zoo intervened in the matter, who sounded the alarm.
A number of measures were taken to rescue animals stuck at the border, and on October 30 it became known that all tigers were moving to the local Polish zoo.
This was announced by the head of the city Jacek Jaskoviak on his official page on Facebook.
However, it is not yet known how long the tigers will stay in Poland and how long their rehabilitation will take.
Experts point out that tigers are exhausted and are on the verge of death.
