St. Félicien Zoo cleans up after major flood and ice jam

An ice jam near the St. Félicien Zoo caused a sudden flood last week that left huge chunks of ice strewn all over a section of the zoo.

Zoo staff scrambled to save the animals from the petting zoo from the rising waters, but in the end twenty-two animals were lost.

Biologist Christine Gagnon tells Quebec AM's Ainslie MacLellan about the efforts to clean up and re-build.
