Metro: Zoo Firings Related To Orangutan Death


(Portland, OR)  --  Metro leaders say the recent management shakeup at the Oregon Zoo is related to the death of an orangutan at the facility.  Officials say Oregon Zoo Director Kim Smith and lead veterinarian Mitch Finnegan were fired because "mistakes were made" regarding the care of the 20-year-old animal named Kutai.  Metro leaders say they plan to implement a system to thoroughly review animal care procedures and protocols at the zoo.
