The Chattanooga Zoo is closing its exhibits until a license issue is resolved, according to a news release from the zoo.

Exhibits will be closed until USDA paperwork can be resolved and a new license is issued, the release said.

The zoo's management and animal care staff will be on-site as normal, zoo CEO Dardenelle Long said in the release.

Previously scheduled zoo camps and birthday parties will also continue as planned, the release stated.
