Report named wrong zoo

Your report (April 13, p8) saying that the film ‘We bought a Zoo’ is based on the Smiths’ purchase of Drusillas Zoo in 1997 is not true.

The film is based on the book written by the owners of Dartmoor Zoo Park and does not follow their story very accurately, as the film features a family in the USA.

Ivan and Carol Morgan

Editor’s footnote: We wish to clarify that the film is indeed based on Dartmoor Zoo Park and not Drusillas Zoo.
