Animals being rescued during Texas deep freeze


Jul 23, 2017
In a world where the news media rarely reports how animals are impacted by disasters, CNN is raising awareness of the issue happening to many wild ones in freezing Texas.

The Texas deep freeze is causing casualties among humans and animals alike.

After rolling power outages plunged much of the state into darkness early this week, animals at the San Antonio Primarily Primates sanctuary froze to death in the winter weather.

Among the casualties were a chimpanzee, many monkeys, some lemurs and countless birds.
