Bison are seen at the High Park Zoo
The High Park Zoo has reopened after closing unexpectedly following the death of one of its bison.

A spokesperson for Parks, Forestry and Recreation says it was one of four bison at the zoo and that the animal had no recent history of illness.

Matthew Cutler says they were alerted to the death by visitors to the zoo and that an investigation is underway to determine what caused the animal’s sudden death.

The zoo is also home to deer, llamas, peacocks, highland cattle and capybaras.
