Dudley Zoo seeks unwanted perfumes and aftershaves for resident big cats

First published in Local

DUDLEY Zoo is appealing to people to donate unwanted perfumes and aftershaves to provide enrichment for some of the world’s rarest big cats.

Keepers at the zoo regularly use strong scents including perfume, aftershave and spices to encourage resident Sumatran tigers, Asiatic lions, snow leopards and Carpathian lynx to track down smells and tests their natural abilities.

Jill Hitchman, the zoo’s head of media and communications, said: “We dab it on to climbing frames and scratching posts and use it around the enclosures and they absolutely love it.

“Unfortunately, stocks are running a little low so if anyone has unwanted aftershave or unused perfume at the back of a drawer please could they donate it to us – the big cats will be most appreciative.”
