Two bison at ZooAmerica are confirmed casualties of the flooding in Hershey, PA.
They were swimming, barely keeping their heads above the water. The zoo workers tried their hardest to save the animals.
A witness said:
"The water, of course, kept getting higher and higher and they were just trying to keep their head above water, and at one point they had a rope and they were just trying to hook that around the horn of the bison."
They were unable to save the bison, though.
The zoo workers stayed the whole night, caring for the animals they were able to rescue.
