Turtle Back Zoo Closed, Staff Spends Stormy Night with Animals
The county's zoo is closed Monday and Tuesday
The Turtle Back Zoo is closed on Monday and Tuesday for the storm, but that doesn't mean nobody's at the zoo. Staff have prepared the animals for the storm, according to Facebook posts. That preparation included, on Sunday, "moving animals, stocking food and potable water, generators, heaters, putting away things that will fly away, putting hay bales around possible areas that may flood, and on and on and on." The post noted, "Our staff is fantastic," adding that a group of zoo employees stayed through Sunday night to care for the animals.
Monday's report noted that "everything is fine." The zoo has power and "animals and staff are well."
