All ERZ emus now have a new home

Five emus have been kept on the grounds of Entsorgung + Recycling Zürich ERZ since 2012. Two of them found a new home in the canton of St. Gallen last December. The search for a place for the three remaining animals was initially unsuccessful. Now, however, a new home has been found for them as well.

The Zurich City Council conducted an investigation into the so-called "ERZ affair" three years ago. In the course of the investigation, the city council ordered to find a suitable place for the emus.

Of the three remaining animals, two will now be housed in the Bernese Oberland, and the third in the canton of Basel-Land, as ERZ media spokesman Daniel Eberhard told Radio Top. However, because of the coronavirus, the emus could not be transported to their new home for the time being. Therefore, they will remain on the premises of ERZ for the time being. As soon as transport is possible, they will be delivered to their new owners.
