Your childhood school holiday destination will be closed down, along with your precious memories and dreams of geting up close and personal with nature in the heart of KL.
The three-decade old Mousedeer Farm in the Perdana Botanical Garden is set to be closed for good soon.
The 1.2ha park is to be converted into a centre for rare plant species while its 52 animals will be sent to Universiti Putra Malaysia.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Phesal Talib said that City Hall was resorting to closing the park as the deer were destroying the mature trees in the park by sharpening their horns on the bark.
“The deer park is old but the trees are even older. We also sent the goats from our pen next to the park two years ago now the land is fertile for plant growth,” he said during a seminar on shaping collaborative efforts for the Botanical Gardens in Malaysia.MYNEWSHUB
