If anything was to happen to these innocent creatures, visitors and friends of the zoo would not take it very lightly.
"That's the end of the world," says Harris.
"I'd be a little shocked," Whit Gutierrez says.
Dinna Potter adds, "I hate to see harm brought to any living thing."
After someone broke into the zoo to steal from the vending machine, it raised several questions regarding how easy it would be for someone to harm the zoo's animals.
"I've been here 2 years and we have not had a situation, nor have I heard of any situations of people breaking into the zoo after hours and hurting any of the animals," says Bill Gersonde.
Zoo Director, Bill Gersonde, says breaking into a zoo is not common. What happened on Monday was a rare event.
"They were looking for one thing and that was money," says Gersonde.
The zoo was not able to go into exact detail about what they do to keep their animals secure, however they do guarantee there are measures in place to maximize the safety of the animals.
Gersonde adds, "Folks can rest assured we are doing everything we can to keep our very precious animals safe."
A statement that puts several zoo visitors at ease.
"It seems like they're pretty well kept here and I don't think they would be in danger," says Potter.
