IA Zoo Owners Want Lawsuit Dismissed

MANCHESTER, IA (AP) -- The owners of a Manchester zoo, sued for allegedly mistreating animals, have asked a judge to dismiss the case.
   Tom and Pam Sellner, owners of Cricket Hollow Zoo were sued by the Animal Legal Defense Fund, a California-based advocacy group, in June. Several area residents claim to have witnessed poor, unsanitary living conditions for zoo animals and have joined the lawsuit.
   The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports an attorney for the Sellners denies most of the accusations in a court document filed July 17. It says several issues cited have already been addressed.
   Allegations focus on violations of the Endangered Species Act and point to the treatment of lemurs, tigers, lions, and gray wolves.
   An attorney for the advocacy group says the organization wants the animals moved to a sanctuary.
