Francis Okello, a staff member said they are installing cameras that will help them monitor whatever will be taking place at the facility.

Since its closure, UWEC says it has suffered a big financial set back and continues to struggle to take care of the animals.

The center has since urged the public to help contribute to the well-being of the animals which, and have so far received UGX 65 million in donations.
