Akron Zoo breaks attendance record this year

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — It has been a record-breaking year at the Akron Zoo.

The zoo says it broke its attendance record this year with about 330,000 people passing through the gates so far.

The Akron Beacon Journal ( ) says the debut of endangered snow leopard cubs and an octopus named Cora have helped drive up attendance.

The zoo's previous high was set in 2008.

A zoo spokesman says they've been able to reach out to community groups in showcasing what the zoo has to offer.
