In a 1 p.m. update, zoo officials said the gas leak had been stopped and the zoo had reopened. The last entry to the zoo is at 3 p.m., as the zoo will close at 4 p.m. and will reopen at 5:30 p.m. for the TXU Energy zoo lights.
Due to the incident, guests who had tickets to the zoo Thursday may use them another day, according to zoo officials.
