Comments / pictures

Founded in 1932 by Axel Hutzelsider (1882-1959), and later with assistans from his son Hubert Hutzelsider (1906-1973), the zoo suffered from the second world war, and the Zoo was leased to Chr. Jensen (dead 1950) and after his death to Kay Bøegh, who finished the leasing in 1960.

The Zoo closed and the animals were sold.
