Frigid weather closes Chehaw

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Due to the current extreme cold weather, the zoo at Chehaw Park will be closed today and Tuesday.

Most of the animals in the zoo have heated buildings, boxes, and shelters that they are kept in during cold winter nights.

In weather this severe, when it remains near freezing even during the daytime, management needs to leave animals inside with access to their heated shelters.

As a result, most of the animal exhibits will be empty as the animals, like people, ride-out this extreme weather event.

 

For more information call 229.430.5275. Chehaw is located at 105 Chehaw Park Rd. in Albany, Georgia.
