The zoo revealed that their new arrivals are nine small Tauernschecken goats, two Tyrolean stone sheep and a small Carinthian spectacled sheep.

Tiergarten Schonbrunn Zoo director Stephan Hering-Hagenbeck said in a statement: “It is important to us to keep these old Austrian livestock breeds with us and to make our visitors aware of their endangered status

“With targeted maintenance breeding, we want to secure the gene pool and thus the continued existence of these domestic animal breeds, which have now become rare.”
