Judge orders Sloth Encounters to temporarily shut down
A Suffolk County Supreme Court Judge ordered Sloth Encounters in Hauppauge to temporarily close.
The business that lets people get up close with sloths has been cited for multiple violations, including possession of wild animals and occupancy without fire marshal approval.
Larry Wallach, who owns Sloth Encounters, claimed the animals are properly cared for.
He will have another chance to make his case in court on a hearing set for Oct. 6.
