Giraffes await transit permits

LAHORE: Three giraffes, one male and two females, will be seen at Lahore Zoo within a week, Lahore Zoo authorities have said. Contrary to this, transit permits for the giraffes have not yet been issued from Brazil, Punjab Wildlife Department (PWD) sources have told Daily Times. Lahore Zoo Director Yousaf Pal has said that giraffes would be bought for Rs 7.4 million, adding Lahoris would see giraffes after 11 years as the last giraffe at the zoo died in 1995. He also said that these giraffes would be brought from South Africa as the people of Lahore were demanding giraffes at Zoo. PWD sources said that Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) Geneva had given permits for the import of giraffes to Pakistan. staff report
