COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Two more animals were killed during a strong hailstorm on Monday at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, officials said Wednesday.
A peacock known as Snoop also died because of hail injuries.
The zoo previously said Daisy, a 4-year-old muscovy duck, and Motswari, a 13-year-old cape vulture, were killed in the storm, which injured 16 people.
Officials said other animals are improving after being injured. A veterinary team from Colorado State University will be at the zoo on Friday to consult on an eye injury to a Rocky Mountain goat.
There are still 101 undrivable vehicles in the main parking lot. They will be towed to the south corner if they are not removed by 5 p.m. Thursday.
The zoo said it will reopen at 8 a.m. Saturday for members and 9 a.m. for the general public. The normal seven-day schedule of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. will follow.
The zoo says it is fully covered by insurance, but the revenue lost from being closed for nearly a week will hurt. It is accepting donations on its website.AlertMe
