"the Zoo animals don't feel well by the sound coming from the concerts in the vicinity. It is so bad that they become bad in the stomach and worried, writes Danish Radio. "
"When the concerts are held in the Mölleparken in Aalborg, denmark will be the animals at Aalborg Zoo, which is located next door, the stressed-out."
"Therefore, the zoo has now asked the municipality to waive future concerts on the site – for the welfare of the välmåendes sake. "
"this year is the three major concerts scheduled. Among other things, the group Maroon 5 perform, and the Danish artist Rasmus Seebach, who appeared at the same place last year."
"Seebachs behavior led to a big fuss, now fear the Aalborg Zoo that to happen again."
"– That we can see during the big concerts, where there is high sound pressure, is that the chimpanzees become bad in the stomach and worried. The same applies to the larger monkeys, and predators, as well as our elephants, " says Henrik Johansen, director of the zoo, to the DR, and continues:"
"– But the animal which has reacted the strongest was our dvärgflodhäst, which is placed far away in the park. The threw themselves into the water and was not up and about in a week."
"We have tried to lock up the animals”"
"the Zoo has tried to itself take measures to remedy the problem."
"– this is something that has been going on for a long time. So we have tried to lock in the animals indoors during these concerts, but even then they react. It is not the quality of life for the animals, to keep them locked up all weekend for the concert."
"According to him, it is not only others konsertdagen that affect the animals, but they will be affected for several days."
" I think they need to find a new place to run these concerts."
"Aalborg municipality does not want to set the already planned events in the Mölleparken. But they look seriously at this, says danske alderman Mads Duedahl (Venstre), at the health and cultural services."
"– of course It is not sustainable, that the animals in the zoo feel bad during the concerts. I do not think that it is about Rasmus Seebach sings false, but that it really is loud music, and it is obviously something we need to relate to, " he says to the DR."
"It has now begun to investigate what other places you can use to concerts, where you do not disturb the animals. "
