The Albuquerque BioPark has been planning to open a Tasmanian Devil breeding facility for months. The zoo even has renderings of what the site would look like, but now the new addition could be in jeopardy after one of the devils died this week.

I will update as news becomes available. I didn't post the story earlier because I was really hoping the culprit would be caught immediately. Obviously that did not happen. Everyone here is quite upset that this happened. Surveillance camera have been added since Jasper was killed and if the reward money is not claimed it will be used to add more security measures.
