Teen Banned From Zoo For Life

DENVER (CBS4)– A teenager and his friend have been banned from the Denver Zoo for life after the 17-year-old jumped over a railing to get a better picture of a rhinoceros.

The teen made his way over a glass barrier that’s meant to separate the public from a staff walkway near the rhino exhibit.
