Pueblo Zoo sign hit by gunfire

PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Pueblo Zoo reported Tuesday that their sign on the corner of Pueblo Blvd. and Goodnight Ave. was vandalized by gunfire.

The zoo said this is the second time in a year that this has happened. The Zoo believes it happened just before 2 am on Christmas Eve.

"It was replaced and repaired in February of 2022 and then to have it again in December of 2022 it’s disappointing because we know our community is better than that," said Sandy Morrison, with the Pueblo Zoo.

The zoo hopes to have the sign repaired soon so they can provide the community with information about the zoo and events.

"We are an educational resource, we’re a family-friendly fun place to come to learn about conservation and all the animals and the work that we do to secure our animals. With this sign being out it’s just one less way to reach out the public," said Morrison.

The Zoo will have to pay out of pocket to fix the sign. It's a 3,000 to 5,000 dollar expense. They are accepting donations.
