Louisville Zoo animals being treated to pumpkins

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Halloween may be over, but the animals at the Louisville Zoo are in store for a treat on Saturday.

Each year after the holiday, the zoo treats the animals to a Halloween staple -- pumpkins. It's part of an animal enrichment program, which promotes the expression of natural behavior in captivity.

People who are interested can catch all the orange action at the Louisville Zoo from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The zoo's Halloween celebration was a major success. A spokesperson says nearly 93,000 people came out for the "The World's Largest Halloween Party."

The attendance number broke a previous record of a little more than 90,000 people in 2005.

During the 18-night event, the Louisville Zoo handed out more than one million pieces of candy.
