While I wouldn't have wanted them to announce what had happened on the sign or something like that, I think the fact that they didn't even acknowledge what had happened until the media picked up on it has left them far more exposed. Were they going to go on as if nothing ever happened and just pretend they still had 28 penguins? Though their reasons for shielding the public from the news are probably wise and well-meaning, it's made them look like they have something to hide when, as you've pointed out, there's not much that can stop an urban fox.

The video probably should have gone up earlier.

As posted on SouthParks News, Chessington have published their provisional opening times for 2018.

The MAP weekend is set to be 10th-11th March, with the Resort opening fully on 17th March. Whilst there isn't a huge amount of difference to 2017's hours, it does look like we may be getting an additional weekend of Howl'o'ween with it starting on the 13th-14th October.

It appears Chessington’s Half Term event has got off to a good start, as the car park has reached capacity. The wording of the tweet suggests that they don’t have all the available car parks open.

It is great to see there is demand for February Half Teem events, although if it is the case that only one car park is open then this is poor planning. Surely they could open one to save guests being disappointed or parking on the road?
