Teens Break Into New Jersey Petting Zoo, Ride Animals & Cause Chaos
A group of teenagers broke into a New Jersey petting zoo and went on a rampage … and cops say they knocked over the place in the middle of the night and cruelly put lipstick on one of the animals.
Cops in Wyckoff, New Jersey, say at least six teens illegally surrendered to Abma’s Farm this weekend around 10 p.m., well after office hours. The family who live there and run the place say they heard noise outside and ran out to see what was going on.
They claim to have encountered a number of teenagers in the field in different animal enclosures. Family members say they tried to hunt them down, but all the children ran away.
Subsequently, the owner says he was sent a picture of a blonde girl riding one of his miniature donkeys, with all of her weight on it … and a Snapchat filter that said “Abma’s Farm”. It also looks like one of their ponies got a makeover … with lipstick applied to their mouth.
The facility claims the children also freed a group of animals from their confined areas and interacted with the livestock in dangerous ways … leaving the creatures exhausted after the fact. Fortunately, Abma’s Farm says all of their animals are counted.
The place remained closed Monday as a vet came by and checked all of the 60 or so animals present at the scene. Abma’s Farm looked angry in the Facebook post, saying it wasn’t just teenage hijinks and pranks … it was downright disrespectful and criminal.
The cops have yet to make any arrests, but are on the lookout. They believe they have solid leads with at least one photo and potential names.
