New TV channel brings San Diego Zoo to hospitalized kids

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - Kids at Sanford Children's Hospital in South Dakota can't come to the San Diego Zoo, but a new television channel brings the zoo to them.

The San Diego Zoo Kids channel is available in every patient and waiting room at the hospital.

Some of the zoo's famous animals traveled to South Dakota to help announce the new channel. Patients visited with a parrot, a snake and a skunk.

The channel features a variety of animals from the zoo, plus footage from the panda cam.

Hospital officials say the channel provides a break from reality for families who are dealing with illness.
