Broken Zoo

A massive storm ripped through here late Thursday night, but here in Town it was just a big storm and did little damage. But the Zoo has been shredded. There are trees down all over the place and the zoo had to close its gates for 2 days.

The animals are pretty freaked out by it all. I just heard on the news that one of the giraffes, Shari, became so frightened she charged out of the pen and tripped over a fallen tree. She was so badly injured the vets had to euthanase her.

Everyone in the zoo is pretty upset. Shari was one of the friendly ones who could be hand fed by visitors.
