33 snakes, including endangered species, found dead at zoo

Published: Saturday, March 25, 2017 @ 9:36 PM

Knoxville Zoo officials are investigating why 33 reptiles, including three endangered species, died Wednesday. 

Herpetologists came to work that morning to find a majority of the 52 animals housed in one of the reptile buildings dead. They immediately evacuated the snakes and lizards, giving them oxygen and checking their heartbeats with an ultrasound device.

“This is a devastating and catastrophic loss to our zoo,” Lisa New, president at the zoo, told the Knoxville News Sentinel Saturday. “These animals were important ambassadors who helped so many people understand the role snakes and lizards play in the balance of nature.”

Veterinarians from the zoo as well as from the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine are investigating the cause of death.

“We also lost breeding programs for several endangered and threatened species,” she added. “It is especially difficult for our herpetologists who have dedicated their careers to caring for and advocating for these animals.”

Three critically endangered species died; the Louisiana pine snake, the Catalina Island rattlesnake and the Aruba Island rattlesnake. The zoo’s forest cobra and albino Eastern diamondback rattlesnake also died.

“We don't know exactly what occurred to cause this terrible event, but we do know it was isolated to a single building,” the zoo said in a post on Facebook. “We are continuing to investigate all the physical systems and conducting necropsies to see if we can gain any insight.”

A Japanese auto parts manufacturer will invest $55 million and add 85 jobs at the Champion City Business Park in Springfield, a significant expansion of its original plans for the site.

Topre America first announced in December it would invest $10 million and add 20 jobs to build a Springfield plant to manufacture high-strength steel parts for the Acura MDX.

Company leaders said Monday they will now make a much bigger investment. The 85 new jobs will include assembly, stamping and light manufacturing positions, and offer an average wage of $19.50 per hour.

Topre will build a 146,000-square-foot facility in the Champion City Business Park, which was once home to an old Navistar factory. The deal announced Monday is contingent on state and local incentives, according to information from the Chamber of Greater Springfield.
