Louisville Zoo gives animal pumpkins to play with and eat

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Halloween at the Louisville Zoo just got a little more fun.

The Zoo gave some of its animals pumpkins to play with and eat Saturday.

The hundreds of pumpkins that decorated the park for "The World's Largest Halloween Party" were given to the elephants, tigers, gorillas and other animals.

Zoo officials say this is all part of what they call Halloween Enrichment.

They say enrichment is an important part of animal care because it promotes the expression of natural behavior.
