Linton Zoo is offering big cat bedding and exotic hoof dung in a bid to raise funds for its conservation efforts.

The big cat bedding seems to work very well as natural pest repellent, with reports that it is effective with cats, rabbits, badgers, foxes and deer.

The special zebra and tapir poo composting mix is great to enrich your garden and encourage the growth of healthy plants, beautiful blooms and bumper vegetable crops the environmentally friendly way.

Zoo staff have found melons, pumpkins, kiwi, raspberries and even date palms popping up in the gardens.

For a minimum donation of £1 per bag, it is helping the zoo to raise funds for its wildlife charities.

The big cat bedding and zoo poo can be picked up at the front gate.
