Artemis

Artemis was confiscated from a private owner and temporarily taken care of by the NHC of Opglabbeek. A seizure only takes place in case of serious cruelty to animals (aviary without flying space, neglect, illegal keeping of an animal, no official papers, ...). Artemis now enjoys an adapted enclosure together with other animals of the same species.
