FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Animals at Brookfield Zoo Enjoy a Halloween Treat

Brookfield, IL—Today, animals at Brookfield Zoo were treated to some Halloween treats—pumpkins. The African lions, sloth bears, meerkats, red river hogs, pygmy hippos, and rhinos seemed to thoroughly enjoy their treats. Some of the pumpkins were carved out and filled with other goodies such as grain, meal worms, meat, raisins, and grapes.

Through the end of the month, many of the zoo’s other animals will be receiving pumpkins too. This weekend, zoo guests can see the lions and sloth bears receiving pumpkins during the annual Boo! at the Zoo celebration on October 27 and 28.
