Halstead: Facebook threats made to zoo protesters
3:42pm Friday 6th December 2013 in News
A Halstead gran’s zoo protest went ahead despite threats being made on her Facebook page.
Kala Dowsett, 49, organised the protest outside Colchester Zoo following the fatal shooting of three wolves which escaped last week.
She said Saturday’s demonstration received a positive reponse from passers-by, but only eight people turned out to protest.
Mrs Dowsett believes many more thought it had been cancelled after she was forced to take down a Facebook page promoting the event after threats were made on it.
