VSP conducting search warrant at the Natural Bridge Zoo in Rockbridge County

Virginia State Police is executing an investigative search warrant along with the help of the Attorney General’s Office.

Outside the zoo, there are at least a half dozen law enforcement officers, but there’s much more going on behind the zoo walls.

Debbie Mogensen, who owns the zoo with her husband Karl, claims that they’re being raided unfairly.

At this time, no animals have been brought out of the zoo.

The Mogensen’s lawyer told us that they will have 10 days to prepare for a court seizure hearing.

10 News reached out to the Attorney General’s Office for comment and received the following response:

In addition to this, PETA has issued a statement in response to the investigation, which can be found below:

We also called the Rockbridge County Commonwealth’s Attorney Jared Moon, who told us that it’s a pending investigation and he can’t comment.

Additional information was not provided, but we have a crew at the scene working for you to gather more information.

We will continue to update this article as more details become readily available.
