National Zoo problems
Recent deaths, injuries and escapes of animals at the National Zoo is raising concerns.
It comes after an internal investigation found some animals could be at risk.
Just last month, a Zebra severely injured an animal keeper.
And earlier this year, a Red Panda and Vulture escaped their enclosure.
Zoo officials say the budget is partly to blame.
"This is where we look at ourselves very carefully, and we have to review what resources are available."
The Zoo doesn't charge admission and officials say Congress has cut two-million dollars over the last few years.
