New Zion legal action

7:51 pm on 10 February 2012

The lawyer for the former manager of Northland's Zion Wildlife Gardens says his client is taking fresh legal action over the sale of the park, and care of its big cats.

The receivers of the Gardens have sold the debt-ridden park to a company called Zion Wildlife Kingdom, and it is understood the purchaser has engaged the Lion Man, Craig Busch, to help run the enterprise.

The lawyer for Mr Busch's mother and the former park manager, Patricia Busch, says they are filing proceedings against a number of parties including the new owner, and possibly the police and the receivers.
