BRIDGEPORT - Beardsley Zoo has reopened once again for visitors, one week after it was closed due to the blizzard.

Zoo employees say they can usually handle snowstorms, but last week's blizzard was so severe that backup had to be called in to help the zoo recover. Trucks were brought in to haul the excess snow away and the walkways were cleared for visitors.

All of the animals were taken care of and had enough food during the storm. The zoo is now open for its regular hours.
