RI zoo donates aquariums to vandalized pet store

August 12, 2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Roger Williams Park Zoo has donated two large aquariums to a pet store in Massachusetts that was robbed and vandalized.

WLNE-TV reports on Monday (http://bit.ly/1cuJOzv ) that the zoo contributed two tanks to Animal Instincts Aquarium and Pet Supply Center of Fall River, Mass. One of the tanks is 700 gallons and the other is 900 gallons.

The store was nearly forced to close six months ago when someone broke in to rob the business. The thief smashed a 180-gallon tank that held more than two dozen exotic fish. No arrests have been made.

The donated tanks are worth thousands of dollars.
