NEW ORLEANS —Months after a jaguar escaped its habitat  at Audubon Zoo , killing several animals, zoo caretakers reopened the habitat yesterday 2/5.
The jaguar habitat has been closed since July after one of the zoo jaguars, Valerio, escaped.

Investigators believe the jaguar chewed through the fence of the exhibit and escaped through a hole. Valerio escaped before the zoo opened to the public. The staff sedated the jaguar, but not before he attacked nine animals at the zoo, all of which died.

Meanwhile, Valerio has remained out of the sight of the public while the zoo made the modifications to the exhibit.
Modifications include new woven stainless-steel barriers, new welded panels to the service door and rear wall of the habitat, a camera monitoring system, horticulture upgrades and new enrichment structures.

The exhibit is now reopened to the public
