Tree Falls At Delaware Zoo As Rains Pummel State

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. - Brandywine Zoo officials says the zoo will be closed Saturday because of damage caused by a large tree crashed through and destroyed the roof of the Monkey House.
    
The tree fell Friday afternoon as heavy rains fell throughout much of Delaware causing significant road flooding and closures in Kent and Sussex counties.
    
In Wilmington, zoo officials said one wall of the Monkey House buckled as a result of the tree crashing down.
    
There were no reported injuries to humans or animals, but three small monkeys were under veterinary observation as a precaution.
    
Officials said all of the monkeys at Brandywine were being temporarily moved to zoos in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
