Video: Bankrupt Ballymena pet shop's exotic animals are taken away to new homes


It was one of Ballymena's most unusual shops. Inside Jungle World were a wealth of exotic animals including alligators, crocodiles and even two spider monkeys swinging around a huge cage out the back.

Monkeys and other animals have been anaesthetised and boxed up to be transported to new locations after the owner of the pet shop in Ballymena was declared bankrupt.

Richard Potter said he had been trying to get the decision overturned, but after an all-day stand-off on Thursday the animals are on their way to new homes.
