“Most of Zoo’s Furry and Flippered Ride It Out”
From Times Wire Reports

Only three of the New Orleans zoo’s 1,400 animals died in the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.

The famous Audubon Zoo has the good fortune of being located on some of the city’s highest ground, but it also had an efficient disaster plan for the animals.

It suffered no serious flooding but the storm’s fierce winds toppled several large trees and knocked down branches throughout the 52-acre grounds.

The only fatalities so far were to two otters and a raccoon, zoo curator Dan Maloney said.
