Most people head to the zoo to check out the exotic wildlife, but some zoos offer the rarest creatures of all: ghosts! Here are five reportedly haunted zoos in the United States.
A Ghostly Lioness Continues to Stalk Her Prey – Cincinnati Zoo
Legend has it that visitors who stroll alone in isolated areas of the Cincinnati Zoo may find themselves stalked by a ghostly lioness. Guests hear the sound of heavy footsteps and low growls, but turn around to find nothing behind them. Glowing, green eyes also shine from wooded sections of the zoo.
Bumps and Boos – Philadelphia Zoo
Legend has it the Philadelphia Zoo is home to a number ghosts which make their presence known through flickering lights and full-bodied apparitions. Syfy’s Ghost Hunters investigated the zoo in 2010 and encountered strange thumps, bumps, and old-timey music.
