Poor elephant Ruth accidentally ended up outside today sometime between 5-7am because keepers forgot to padlock the barn doors and she opened them. Normally this wouldnt be a problem but the frigid temps and blizzard in the area right now meant she was exposed to temperatures she never should have been out in. They've warmed her with heating blankets and heaters and have put her on antibiotics as a precaution. They are worried about possible frostbite but she seems to be doing ok. Hopefully she wasnt out long enough to harm her.
