DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN)– It’s a Wild Wednesday with none other than the famous Columbus Zoo & Aquarium featuring their famous Barred Owl Exhibit! Zoo Trainer Emily Yunker introduced Living Dayton to Hagrid the Barred Owl, a native to the state of Ohio.

Additionally, Yunker featured their Virginia Opossum exhibit! Sometimes bad reputations can overshadow the significant role an animal plays in the ecosystem. The opossum is a perfect example of this! While these nocturnal creatures may sometimes raid your garbage can at night, they actually consume carrion and help control the population of insects.
