Zoo Animals Receive New Toys

Posted: Updated:

The animals at the Roosevelt Park Zoo received some new presents on Thursday thanks to a donation from the Minot HESS Corporation.The moment the lions and bears walked outside, they immediately were interested in their new toys.

The toys are not only fun for the animals, but it will enhance the quality of their life.

"Stimulating their environment, giving them something to do throughout the day or changing their environment. Whether it's changing the exhibit furniture, adding new scents, spices or toys, such as the ones that you see out here, it could be good for your health,” says Becky Zahn Walcker a senior keeper at the zoo.

The toys will make their way around the zoo so all the animals will get a chance to play. Doors to the zoo are set to open to the public on May 3.
