Owners of Jackson's Giraffes Face Eviction in AZ

Tuesday, 19 Jan 2010 06:17 PM


Police in a small northern Arizona town are investigating the deaths of two giraffes from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch, and two others likely will have to find new homes.

A couple in Page acquired the giraffes as part of a plan to build a wildlife preserve on city property they leased in 2008 that also would house exotic birds, reptiles and a camel.

The two giraffes died within the past two months, and necropsy results are pending.

The animal rights group PETA is calling on police to confiscate and relocate the remaining giraffes.

A move for the giraffes appears inevitable after a judge ruled in favor of the city last week to have the owners of the preserve fulfill the terms of their lease.

City Manager Bo Thomas says Page is preparing to evict the owners.
