Nandankan zoo came out almost unscathed in the cyclone Phailin on Saturday, zoo authorities said on Sunday. It will reopen on Monday.
"There was no death or injury to any caged animal or bird. There was no escape either. Though we generally remain closed on Monday, we will reopen it in view of Dussehra," zoo deputy director Kamal Purohit told TOI. The zoo attracts large number of visitors on Durga puja.
