FRANKLIN PARK, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, many zoos have brought wild and exotic animals into peoples' homes virtually, including the Franklin Park Zoo.

However, as the state slowly reopens, members of the zoo may start visiting again. President and CEO of Zoo New England, John Linehan, said there's no substitute for the in-person experience of going to a zoo.

"An animal that looks you directly in the eye and you have an interaction with, is something you can never replace," Linehan said.

The Franklin Park Zoo is only open to members until June 4, then to the general public. Visitors have to reserve a time slot beforehand.
