Another video about the "france" animals ( snow leopards, lion ) - in Dutch :

The center is currently caring for a group of 8 Binturongs, an Echidna and a pair of Red and White Flying Squirrels after they were seized by customs at a Belgian airport en-route from Jakarta
Other (arguably less exciting) recent additions include two Lions and 14 Porcupines from a bankrupt animal park in Spain

I believe the species of giant flying squirrel is actually Petaurista petaurista, Red giant flying squirrel
Another interesting piece of information in the article is the following; "Er werden diverse dierentuinen en -parken in België gecontacteerd, helaas zonder resultaat," which translates to "Various zoos and parks in Belgium have been contacted, sadly without any results."
Two African Leopards have arrived - they were rescued from awful conditions at a former animal breeding centre in Poland
