ROME, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Officials at a Rome zoo said they are helping the resident animals beat the heat with specially made giant popsicles.
Bioparco di Roma zoo director Paul Giuntarelli said carnivores including lions and tigers are being treated to giant meat popsicles to help them cool off while they eat, and smaller animals such as monkeys are receiving fruit pops filled with yogurt, ANSA reported Wednesday.
Giuntarelli said zoo workers have also set up additional fountains and pools to keep the animals refreshed and "help fight boredom."
