The zoo is a hub of family entertainment and some of the coolest, cuddliest animals you can find on the planet. So then what was up with a full-scale drug bust being implemented at the Rotterdam Zoo?
Turns out one of the animal's urine has a very distinct smell of a certain green plant that many like to smoke!
The Maned wolf is the largest candid of South America and resembles an oversized fox with its red fur, though it does belong to a completely different genus.
It is currently listed as near threatened, but its survival isn't a concern for animal lovers at the moment. They are most often found grazing the grasslands and bushes of Brazil.
Unfortunately, it has a nickname based on its foul odor: the “skunk wolf.”
Its fur isn't the only thing that smells bad. Anytime the animal has to relieve itself you may see stoners or beer lovers flock to the area.
It has the distinct smell of cannabis or hops, most likely from pyrazine in the urine which can be found in both the plants.
The smell resulted in police and drug dogs to scour the Rotterdam Zoo looking for pot smokers, only to find the wolf's habitat.
