How animals at Mansfield Zoo reacted to the earthquake
The first sign that it wasn’t going to be a normal day at Mansfield Zoo was when the wild birds didn’t join in the early morning feeding.
“The birds know where the food is, and they come in for a little tidbit each morning, and those ones didn’t turn up which is quite unusual,” Bronwen Wilson, owner of the Mansifeld Zoo, told Tony Jones.
“So we suspect they knew what was going on.”
However, not all animals at the property had that six sense.
“The animals that did get scared were the Kangaroos, and they took off around the Zoo,” Ms Wilson said.
“The lioness ran straight over (to a zookeeper) like she was asking ‘what was that, what’s happening’, which is pretty interesting.”
