Penguins and a hippopotamus, who were found close to Heroes’ Square, managed to return. In addition, three employees of the zoo were killed. It is unclear how they died, possibly by the White Lion “Shumba”. It is unclear how many animals died during this disaster. It is known that a few tigers were shot.
