Two Animals Killed in Devastating Hail Storm at Colorado Zoo
One of the nation’s most popular zoos is closed Tuesday after being struck by softball-sized hail on Monday afternoon. The storm hit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs, Colorado, provoking a mad dash to shelter by both zoo guests and animals. The storm did a number on an estimated 400 cars but the worst damage took place inside. Fourteen people were injured in the storm, with three zoo employees and two guests being transported to a local hospital for treatment.
