Nearly a week after three Potter Park Zoo animals are killed, the zoo is getting ready for replacements.

Last Thursday night, two dogs slipped into the zoo and mauled four Patagonian Cavies. Three of them died.

The two dogs have been captured.

Potter Park Zoo is importing five Cavies from the Toronto Zoo in Canada.
The zoo director doesn't exactly know how the dogs got in, but he says the zoo is taking extra precautions so it will not happen again.

The large South American rodent that survived the dog attack is expected to live, bringing the Potter Park Zoo Cavy count up to six once the others arrive.
