Fire Hoses Donated for Benefit of Animals

We have recently donated some more old fire hoses to the Berkshire College of Agriculture Zoo to help enrich the lives of the animals living there.

In the past, as you can see from the photos, fire hoses have been used to make toys, browser racks for food, feeders, hammocks, cargo nets, mats or just simply climbing opportunities. Due to its toughness and durability, fire hoses are a tried and tested material for use.

A number of hoses have been donated that are surplus to requirements, and we are pleased to re-purpose old materials in a sustainable way that benefits animals living in the zoo.
