The Calgary Zoo fully reopened today, five months after the devastating flood. An amazing feat considering how destructive all that water was. I remember keeping an eye on every news source possible specifically to find out what was going down at the zoo. There were stories coming up about tigers being kept in jail cells downtown, and hippos escaping into the Bow River. Where were they going to move all these animals? And HOW? Would the city suddenly turn into Jumanji?
Well after reading this story today and learning how it was all done, I’ve come to the conclusion that the staff at the Calgary Zoo are true heroes! Let’s be honest here, not only did they go above and beyond, truly, to save these animals but they put their own lives at risk in doing so. And you know what, they did a damn find job! So take a few minutes and give this story a read…you’ll be amazed at what was happening as the water levels were rising!
