According to the ZooMontana Facebook page, a black bear made its way to the parking lot of ZooMontana late Friday (07/01) morning, which delayed the zoo's opening.
ZooMontana is currently working directly with Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks to assess the situation and ensure the area is safe for guests to enter the zoo. Until that time, the zoo will remain closed. Anyone with questions is encouraged to contact ZooMontana and watch the ZooMontana Facebook page for more updates.
