After 24 days of cleaning up from floods that severely damaged the Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth, guests were invited to return back, Friday.
The floodwaters washed out the barnyard exhibit and damaged the polar bear and seal habitats. The only barn animal from the zoo that survived was a mini-horse named Darla.
Fourteen farm animals drowned during the flood, including goats, sheep and a donkey named Ashley.
According to WCCO-TV, cleaning up the city of Duluth is expected to cost around $80 million, but the tourism board says most of the city is already ready for visitors.
