Man arrested for entering Zoo's elephant enclosure
Police in Washington arrested a man for trespassing in the National Zoo's elephant enclosure.
The elephant area is closed for a major renovation, but the man entered the space Saturday. He was escorted out of the park but returned. That's when zoo officials called the police.
A zoo spokesman says the elephants were outside at the time, and the man didn't encounter them.
After the renovation, the elephant enclosure will include a large walking area and four acres of space indoors and outdoors.
