At least 8 people hurt, 3 animals killed by large hail at Colorado zoo

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - At least eight people have been hospitalized after being hit by large hail on Monday afternoon at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs.

The zoo said one duck and two vultures were killed in the storm, according to KDVR.

Authorities said the victims were being treated for traumatic injuries caused by the powerful hailstorm, but officials have not released the victims' conditions.

All guests from the zoo were transported via public transit to the Cheyenne Mountain High School because the parking lot is full of vehicles officials deemed too damaged to drive.
