Flaco the Owl, One Year of Freedom

Flaco the owl escaped from his prison at the Central Park Zoo nearly a year ago. Here’s Flaco living his best life in Manhattan last Saturday.

On February 2, 2023, one or more liberators, who have not been caught, damaged Flaco’s cell at the zoo, allowing him to escape.

Former Parks Commissioner Gordon Davis called Central Park Zoo a “Rikers Island for animals.”
