Massachusetts zoo on the lookout for stork that flew away
STONEHAM, Mass. (AP) — Maybe she just had a few babies to deliver.
A Boston-area zoo is looking for a female stork that flew away last week and has evaded experts since.
The Stone Zoo in Stoneham posted on Facebook that the 3-foot-tall, white-bellied stork took off Friday during training for the “Masters of Flight: Birds of Prey” show.
The bird, named Las, was last seen Saturday at nearby Spot Pond.
Las has a white belly, dark iridescent purple wings, neck and back, a featherless face and a wingspan of about 3 feet.
The bird is not dangerous. The zoo says anyone who sees the stork should contact the zoo and not approach, because she might fly away.
