High winds brought down a large eucalyptus tree in the lemur enclosure at Drusillas Park.

Zoo manager Sue Woodgate spotted the tree during her morning checks. The tree created the perfect pathway out and fearing the lemurs maybe at large, the zoo’s escape procedures were set in motion. A check confirmed all the lemurs were accounted for.
