The Granby Zoo is about to pull up the covers and put the animals to bed for a few months.
The zoo is only open for three more weekends before winter - and they're throwing a weekend Halloween party that begins today.
The animals will be munching on pumpkins. The zoo will be haunted. And the zookeepers will tell us what scares the giraffes and the rhinos.
Louise Labarre is the biologist and educator at the Granby Zoo. She tells Sonali Karnick about the Halloween activities and how the animals get frisky in the fall.

Wiener dogs and their humans will be gathering at the NDG Dog Run for races and games like bobbing for wieners.
