LOS ANGELES – Fourteen accredited zoos across the nation are participating in a program that brings the zoo to hospitalized children. Smaller animals are brought into safe areas of the hospital for the kids to see and touch, larger animals are shown through actual footage while sharing fun facts.

            These children suffer from illnesses varying from cancer, kidney problems or simply a broken leg, but these programs provided by the zoos offer a temporary distraction.
