Many places across the state shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and many employees are working from home.

For others, that’s hard to do. Some places have lots of hungry mouths to feed.

Zookeepers at Como Zoo are keeping the zoo running, and the main attractions fed.

Como Zoo closed last week. It’s usually open 365 days a year.

Zookeeper Allison Jungheim says many animals look like they are wondering where all the people are.

"I think it’s definitely a change for them," Jungheim said. "They are so used to the [number] of visitors we have in here that a lot of them are like, ‘This is really weird.’"

Como Zoo hopes to reopen soon.
