ASHEBORO, N.C. — A broken water pipe in the African exhibit has some areas of the North Carolina Zoo off limits to visitors.

All the animals are still on display, but a restaurant and some bathrooms have been closed while repairs are made.

The animals are getting water from temporary sources.

The closure is expected to last through the weekend.
