A Bangkok zoo keeps animals cool from the heat


A Bangkok zoo kept its animals cool from the summer heat by spraying water and feeding them iced-cold popsicles and yogurt on Thursday, April 30th.

Officials in Dusit Zoo fed animals some treats, made from fruits and syrup, along with frozen fish and yogurt in Thailand's hottest month.

A zoo keeper said the heat at this time of year, especially March and April, can cause stress in animals

The zoo also cooled down its animals by setting up sprinklers, increasing shade and monitoring the animals closely.

Thailand Public Heath Ministry warned people to keep hydrated and remain inside to avoid heat stroke, which can be caused by the sweltering heat which can be as high as 107.6 Fahrenheit.
