Baseball-Sized Hail Responsible For Killing Two Colorado Zoo Animals And Injuring 14 People

By B. Miller

A major hail storm hit parts of Colorado Springs on Monday. One of the affected areas was the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The baseball-sized hail was so intense that the zoo was evacuated. Unfortunately, despite the evacuation, 14 visitors were injured, with five requiring a trip to the hospital.

Perhaps more devastating, however, was the loss of two animals: Daisy, a muscovy duck, and Motswari, a cape vulture.
