Peña Escrita Zoo Info Needed    Does anyone know the current status of the main entrance gate into the Peña Escrita zoo, North of Almuñécar? Last year it was locked, purportedly so that the animals could be relocated. I am curious as the zoo’s upper parking lot is my preferred starting point to hike up Navachica.    Replies to andrew hyphen clarke at shaw dot ca
