Cleanup at Prague zoo underway after flooding
11 Jun 2013 | 10:58 am
PRAGUE (AP) — More than a decade after many of its animals drowned, the Prague Zoo is counting the cost of yet another devastating flood. In 2002, more than 100 animals died — among them, Kadir, a male elephant that became stranded up to his ears in floodwaters and had to be euthanized — when the zoo was inundated by the worst flooding in centuries. In June, nature has again taken its toll, with major flooding that has ravaged parts of Central Europe, again submerging the entire lower parts of the park again. This time, only a handful of animals were swept away and an army of volunteers are making sure the hundreds that have been evacuated return home as soon as possible. Meanwhile, plans are underway on how to minimize the impact of future floods.
