Sinkhole at Louisville, KY Zoo


Recommended Posts

Some are thinking this sinkhole may be related to six earthquakes in Tennessee last week.

Much of the zoo sits on top of Mega Cavern.  Both the zoo and Mega Cavern are closed until deemed safe.

The Louisville Zoo remained closed Thursday while investigators work to learn what caused a football-field-sized sinkhole to open in an undeveloped part of the zoo.

Zoo staff found the sinkhole about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday during a routine walk-through, zoo spokeswoman Kyle Shepherd said. No people or animals were hurt, and no buildings were damaged, Shepherd said.

LOUISVILLE, KY (WLKY) -- Officials said they are investigating whether a Maynardville earthquake that happened Tuesday, caused a massive sinkhole to open inside the Louisville, Kentucky Zoo.

The hole was found in an undeveloped part of the zoo. Officials said no animals were injured and there was no damage to any buildings.

A zoo spokesperson said engineers are on site investigating.

Following the Tennessee earthquake, the Mega Cavern, an old limestone mine open to tourists in Louisville, Kentucky, closed as part of standard procedure

So glad to hear that no animals were killed or injured...these sinkholes are such a scary phenomenon..so sudden, unpredictable, and you never know where they'll happen next. And there's almost certain loss of life to anyone caught in it..
