Reward increased

        Owners of African Safari Wildlife Park are increasing the reward to $15,500 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of the June 2016 vandalism at the park.

        Owners are concerned that the vandals may harm the animals if they are not apprehended.

        The Ohio Farm Bureau is continuing its support to spread the word about the reward, urging anyone who knows something to come forward and talk with the police. African Safari Wildlife Park is a member of the Ohio Farm Bureau (OFB) and is accredited by both the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) and the Zoological Association of America (ZAA).

        On the evening of June 28, 2016, African Safari was vandalized, several trees were cut down, and the fence was pried away from the post.

        The park has more than 60 surveillance cameras, and with the recent enhancements and improvements of facial recognition technology, consultants are optimistic that the perpetrators will soon be identified.

        Danbury Township Police have some leads and believe that it will just take one or two more tips to solve the case. They have interviewed several area residents about the incident. “Any information in this case could be the key piece of evidence we need to arrest the person or persons responsible. The damage to the property was quite extensive. It was clearly malicious and we are looking into any information the community can offer,” said Sgt. Det. Mark Meisler.

        The reward will be paid to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator(s).

        Call the Danbury Police Department at 419-732-2549 with any info.
