TULSA, Okla. – A former employee at the Tulsa Zoo who was arrested on a complaint of child pornography is now facing another charge.

On Dec. 9, authorities say 65-year-old Kim Bowman was arrested on complaints of possession of child pornography after officers served a warrant at Bowman’s home.

Officials say Bowman was a part-time train conductor at the Tulsa Zoo.

Zoo officials say that when Bowman was hired in 2015, he passed all background checks.

After learning about the allegations, the Tulsa Zoo suspended Bowman immediately.

FOX 23 reports that Bowman is now facing a child sex abuse charge after he allegedly admitted to having sexual contact with a young child.
