The Decatur Scovill Zoo is closed for the winter now but officials indicate 2017 was another strong year.
Thanks to a great turnout for their annual Halloween event, Boo At The Zoo, Director Ken Frye says it took them over the 100,000 attendees threshold this year.
While it wasn't a banner year for the zoo from an attendance perspective, Frye indicates it was still a solid year as he likes to achieve that 100-thousand number as often as possible.
The Zoo will reopen in the spring as several of the animals in their collection now head indoors for the winter season. Frye indicates they have several animals that actually enjoy the winter season. We'll have more on the winter at the Scovill Zoo in the coming days on Regional Radio News.
