This Stork in Florida Wanted Nothing to Do With Hurricane Matthew—So It Hid in a Bathroom

Oct 07, 2016

A giant bird in Florida appeared to hide from Hurricane Matthew—and other animals it had to hunker down with inside a zoo—by ducking out inside a bathroom.

The St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park on Thursday shared a photo on its Facebook page of a marabou stork hanging out inside a public restroom at their facility. “No species discrimination in this bathroom!" it said.

The post has been liked more than 2,000 times and shared more than 500 times.

The zoo, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment, wrote on Facebook that it has been preparing for the storm for two days, which included moving all of it animals indoors.
