Police are investigating how a circus sea lion died on Monday while being transported between two towns in Moravia. A police spokesperson said there was a suspicion of neglect in connection with the animal’s death, while a representative of the State Veterinary Authority said transporting animals that need to be in water was highly difficult during the kind of hot weather the Czech Republic is currently experiencing. Fire officers saved a second sea lion belonging to the Princ circus when they cooled it down with water and filled its tank, which had been empty.
