Statement Addressing Orangutan Incident

Statement Addressing Orangutan Incident

Posted on June 7th, 2020 at 12:52 PM

We appreciate all the thoughts and concerns regarding the incident at the zoo last evening. As of right now, we are respecting the privacy of our staff. We can assure you that “Dasa” the orangutan was contained the entire time and was never out of her exhibit. Additionally, the keeper was at no time ever inside the exhibit with the orangutan. There will be no actions taken against “Dasa” the orangutan, and we hope for full recovery of our keeper. The situation is being fully investigated.

Please see more statements from CEO Scott Mitchell in the Go Erie article below.
