Giraffes killed in fire at attraction in Wisconsin Dells

by

WISCONSIN DELLS, WI (WTAQ) - Two giraffes were killed in a fire at a Wisconsin Dells attraction.

It happened last night at the Timbavati Wildlife Park.

Owner Mark Schoebel said the fire quickly destroyed the giraffe barn – and two four-year-old giraffes were killed. He said they were among the most popular animals in the park – which also has kangaroos, large cats, antelope, zebras, and penguins.

Schoebel said the park would replace the giraffes but quote, “It’s not an easy pill to swallow.”
