Hershey—A Hersheypark spokesperson confirmed to FOX43 that two Bison at Zoo America were euthanized Wednesday. Zoo America closed its doors at noon due to the worsening weather. The area that housed the Bison began to flood, too quickly according to the spokesperson. Zoo America officials feared that the animals were about to drown. It was decided to euthanize the animals.
Trained experts humanely euthanized the animals at around 5 o'clock Wednesday. All other animals at Zoo America were safely moved to drier ground.
