Zoo’s Polar Bear Escapes, Seals “Washed Away” In Duluth Flooding


“The rains and flooding in northeastern Minnesota have devastated a local zoo, killing at least 14 animals. Amid the chaos, a polar bear had to be tranquilized after escaping her enclosure, and two seals “washed away” and wound up on a Duluth thoroughfare.

That may have been how passersby knew there was a problem at Lake Superior Zoo, said spokeswoman Holly Henry — they drove past Feisty and Helen out on Grand Avenue.¬†Escaped seal pictures¬†were even popping up on social media.

The two seals survived the ordeal, but officials at the small Duluth zoo were mourning the loss Wednesday of the animals that died — and the death toll may grow, Henry said.”

Had seen the video. Very sad for the animals that drowned. Prayers and concern for that part of MI, both for people and animals.
