Animals Freeze to Death in Italian Zoo
Built in the Aspromonte mountains of southern Italy at over 4000 feet, the "Jurassic Park" zoo may not have been the ideal home for toucans, ostriches, and zebras.
In fact, it proved that it wasn't. As the fall season came on the temperature dropped signifigantly, bringing snow and dangerous living conditions to the park's tropical species.
Half of the zoo's fifty animals perished over the winter.
