Zoo Animals Seek Shelter During Hurricane Irma at Fort Valley State University

In *All by Ag is America

As Hurricane Irma invaded Florida and parts of southern Georgia this past week, residents were encouraged and sometimes required to evacuate their homes and find safety elsewhere. Luckily for over 100 zoo animals, they were able to seek shelter at Fort Valley State University’s State Animal Facility for Emergencies.

The center has housed animals in similar situations before, most recently during Hurricane Matthew. This week, they will be hosting bald eagles, wolves, foxes, bobcats, and approximately 70 horses until the storm dies down.
