Beardsley Zoo uses Facebook Live amid social distancing regulations

Posted: Updated:

The Beardsley Zoo has found a way to keep people entertained despite social distancing regulations.

The zoo started using Facebook Live to bring the zoo to people stuck at home.

Workers plan to do this three times a week at 2 p.m.

The special guest Wednesday will be tigers.

The goal is to keep people and the zoo interacting during these tough times. Workers say the animals have noticed the change and are learning to adjust with the new normal.

Like so many places, the Beardsley Zoo is losing money from these new regulations. Workers have set up an emergency fund for people to donate.
