BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission signed off on multiple changes that need to be made to the rhino encounter at the Brevard Zoo before it can reopen.

The attraction has been closed since January when a toddler stumbled into the exhibit and was seriously injured.

Among the 12 procedural changes signed off on by the FWC are new limits on the ages of those permitted in the exhibit and the number of people allowed in at one time.

Children younger than 7 will no longer be allowed in the rhino encounter, and only eight people will be allowed in at one time.
