Environmental groups will hold a third protest outside the Limassol Zoo on Sunday calling for the state to shut it down following multiple deaths of animals kept there.

The Animal Party said on Friday that the Green party and other environmental groups will participate.

“We are outraged because to date we have not seen any investigations and or findings regarding the causes and circumstances regarding the death of the animals within the zoo,” the party said.

The protest on Sunday will take place at 3pm.
