Zoo management is thrilled to announce that the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service donated an ambulance to the Assiniboine Park Zoo today. The vehicle, recently taken out of active service in Winnipeg, was retrofitted and will be used as a mobile means of treating sick and injured animals. The APZ previously used a cargo van as it’s mobile treatment vehicle for its animals.
