After it's first summer back since the flood of 2011, the Roosevelt Zoo is closing up and getting ready for it's first winter since 2010 with the animals being on-site.
With temperatures dropping fairly quickly, zoo animals
that can't withstand the cold are being transferred to heated buildings on the zoo grounds for the winter.
The process of moving these animals includes workers going inside the cages of the monkeys and birds, catching them, and actually carrying them inside.
So now most of the winter prep is complete, and one zookeeper says that it was a great year back after the flood, and they are going to continue to have events at the Roosevelt Zoo this winter.
(Becky Zahn Walcker, Zookeeper) "Yeah, we look forward to the visitors, you know, coming and we have events that go on throughout the winter to get them in here and see some of the progress."
A few other restorations are still being worked on after the flood, and are expected to be complete sometime next year.
