New animals at the Potawatomi Zoo


With the weather being so nice this weekend, the Potawatomi Zoo will be open for business.

The zoo has new attractions such as red pandas, a snow leopard and a new chimpanzee.

Zoo officials say they can't wait for the public to see the new animals.

"We lost our female red panda last year, it was devastating for us as well as the public so people are always asking when is Tye gonna get a new friend, and so this will be big news," says Marcy Dean.

The zoo will be open Saturday from noon til 3pm.
