The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington had a record breaking month for attendance due to the unseasonably warm winter weather.
According to superintendent of the Miller Park Zoo, Jay Tetzloff, the mild weather is to thank for shattering the all time attendance record set just last year.
Tetzloff adds that community attendance was expected to increase due to the inclusion of a new exhibit. That after a record setting year in 2015.
In addition to the weather, Free Fridays in February were a part of the increased attendance which Tetzloff says coincided nicely with the unseasonably warm weather.
