Protecting the Animals

While people shiver, some familiar attractions at The Nature Center seem to be living it up.

River otters "Olive" and "Obi-wan" didn't seem too bitter about the cold this morning.

The Nature Center says most of the animals there are native to the Appalachians and perfectly fine in winter weather.

Even so, handlers do what they can to make sure they're as comfortable as possible.

Giving them warmer areas where they can stay safe.

Chris Gentile, director, "what you see is we put a lot of bedding in the back up areas, pine straw and things like that. We have heating systems so animals can come back in where it's a little bit warmer."

With the temperature dropping rapidly, The Nature Center let the animals inside their shelters early this afternoon.
