Oh hail no: Hailstorm kills animals in Texas zoo

Several exotic birds at the Fort Worth Zoo lost their lives early Thursday when a powerful hailstorm hit North Texas. The hail, which was reported to be the size of golf balls, killed five flamingoes, a pelican, and several other small birds.
The storm was strong enough to break windows, including a skylight at the zoo, and damage police vehicles in Arlington, the Associated Press reported. Unfortunately, it was also strong enough to break several birds as well. The flamingos had stayed outside during the storm, according to spokeswoman Alexis Wilson.

"They were all in the water where they usually are," Wilson told AP. "We have probably 60-something flamingos that are on exhibit, and they don't come in, they stay out."
