Louisville Zoo Re-Opens

The Louisville Zoo in Kentucky is set to reopen today after a sinkhole opened up and ate a patch of land about as wide as a football field. The sinkhole opened last week and was estimated to be about 50 yards by 85 yards (45 meters by 75 meters) and about 50 feet (15 meters) deep in some spots. Officials said Thursday that the sinkhole’s cause still is unclear. Zoo spokeswoman Kyle Shepherd has said no people or animals were reported injured and no buildings damaged.
