Columbus Zoo: Rescued animals doing well
Here is an update about the six animals who were rescued from a farm in Zanesville.
“There has been a tremendous amount of interest in the tragic situation regarding the dangerous animals that were released from a privately owned animal menagerie in Zanesville, Ohio. This has been a sad and difficult situation for the staff of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and the Wilds and we are buoyed by the support we have received and the outpouring of concern for the animals.
The young grizzly bear, two Celebes macaques (monkeys), and three leopards (including a black leopard) that were rescued were transported to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium yesterday afternoon. They are currently being housed in the C. Joseph Cross Animal Health Center where they are receiving around the clock care and monitoring in order to assess their condition and ease their transition. We are happy to report they all seem to be doing very well.
The animals have been through a lot and it is imperative we provide them with adequate time to adjust in a calm, quiet environment.”
