LA Zoo Swiftly Handles Downed Tree Incident with No Injuries to Guests or Animals

On March 1st, the Los Angeles Zoo faced an unexpected challenge when a large pine tree fell onto one of its pedestrian pathways. The recent rains and strong winds were the culprits behind the fallen tree, and the zoo took immediate action to ensure the safety of its guests and animals.

As soon as the incident occurred, the zoo closed to the public and safely escorted all guests out of the premises while zoo officials assessed the situation. The Los Angeles Fire Department arrived on-site shortly after and confirmed that there were no injuries to guests or staff. Animal care staff also confirmed that no animals were hurt.

The quick response and caution taken by the Los Angeles Zoo is commendable and shows the dedication they have to their guests and animals. The zoo is taking the necessary steps to assess its grounds and determine if it is safe to reopen to the public on Thursday, March 2.

The LA Zoo is known for its exceptional animal care and attention to safety, and this incident is no exception. The zoo’s commitment to the well-being of its guests and animals is evident in their quick response and thorough assessment of the situation.

We are grateful for the Los Angeles Zoo’s dedication to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all visitors, and we look forward to its reopening soon.
