FARM LIFE: Meet the animals that have also been in lockdown
It’s not just us humans that have spent the last year isolating with little to no human contact, meet the animals that have also been in lockdown.
Nobody expected back in the December 2019 what the next 17 months would have in store. We’ve spent the majority of that time locked down, with little human contact. But, we’re not the only ones. Meet the animals at Hartlepool’s Tweddle Farm! The pigs, horses, llamas, birds, rabbits, goats and everything in between have also not seen the public in a very long time! As sites begin to reopen across the region, we spoke to Farm manager Daniel to find out what the animals in lockdown have been up to.
More than 700 million people visit zoos, aquariums and farms each year across the globe, so human visitors are usually a constant for the animals. COVID-19 forced this normal to change, leaving resident animals in silence. According to Tweddle Farm, and other sites across the country, animals have actually enjoyed the peace and quiet.
This is without a doubt the longest time the farm animals have gone without public interaction, with some animals that were born during the pandemic having never seen the public at all. On your next visit, be calm, cool and collected- the animals, just like us, are adjusting back to normal life.
