    The Emperor Valley Zoo is pleading with persons not to fly drones over the facility.

    The appeal came via its Facebook page this morning, after an incident in which a drone was flown inside of the giraffe enclosure.

    The Zoo says this frightened the animals and could have caused the giraffe to stampede, which could have led to severe injury.

    It adds that this type of equipment causes stress and discomfort to any animal in close proximity.
