Peterborough Police & Riverview Park & Zoo Team Up To Show The Community Love For Boy After Recent Incident

You may recall the recent incident at Riverview Park & Zoo involving a boy named Logan with autism who was visiting the zoo with his family from Belleville when they were verbally accosted by a man that was apparently unhappy with Logan's behaviour.

"We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to this family and want to let them know that they are always more than welcome here at the Park and Zoo," the zoo wrote in a Facebook post, the remainder of the heartfelt entry you can read below...

Well on Monday (June 25th), the zoo showed just how welcoming they are, as they had Logan and his family (pictured below) back to the zoo for a private tour to show them what this community is really about—and how inclusive we are.

Not only that but the Peterborough Police showed up to show their support for Logan...

"After we heard this story we wanted to show up to support Logan, his Mom, his sister and his Nana," Peterborough Police said on their Facebook page. "Our community is about inclusion. Everyone has a place. Everyone belongs."
