Jackson Zoo to remain closed on Saturday, possibly Sunday


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – The Jackson Zoo will remain closed on Saturday, May 8, due to ongoing power.

According to zoo leaders, the animal care night houses and facilities have enough electricity to function, but some necessary zoo staff buildings and the carousel are still affected by an outage from Tuesday’s severe storms.

If the issues are not over the weekend, the zoo will remain closed on Sunday, May 9.
