Parts of the compound wall that caved in due to heavy rain at the Arignar Anna Zoological Park, popularly known as Vandalur Zoo, near Chennai, have been safely secured and all the animals are safe, a top official said on Wednesday.

“Only some portions of the outer compound wall broke down due to rains. Those spots have been secured and there is no fear of any animal escaping out,” director K.S.S.V.P. Reddy told IANS.

According to Reddy, the animal enclosures are not damaged and surplus water is being drained out.
