Miller Park Zoo closes at 1 p.m. on Monday and will reopen on
Jay Tetzloff, Miller Park Zoo superintendent, says at
least one of the residents of the zoo is looking forward to Monday
"Last Sunday, one of our two reindeer, Ealu, went through Santa's
team testing," Tetzloff says. "Ealu passed with 'flying colors' but
Rikka had some pre-tryout nerves."
Rikka has her hooves crossed that she might be picked as a
game-day replacement to join the sleigh team. Fans of the zoo can
check on her progress by following her Twitter feed, @RikkaReindeer.
