MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – While the flooding in South Carolina this month was devastating and has done untold amounts of property damage, the Myrtle Beach Safari took the opportunity to let their animals get their paws wet and have a little fun.

A video posted to the Myrtle Beach Safari YouTube page begins with the message: “While we prepare for the inevitable epic clean-up, we take a moment to realize how much worse things could have been and that, even in this time of difficult, we should make the most out of each and every day.

In the video posted on October 5, one of the preserve’s chimpanzees went out on the water on a surfboard, holding on to a handler as he paddles through a flooded street.

“Elsewhere on the Preserve, the tigers take advantage of the wet weather to participate in their favorite pastime, chasing the ‘mop-e-lope’.”

The video then shows slow-motion footage of the preserve’s large cats chasing the “mop-e-lope” into large puddles at the T.I.G.E.R.S. preserve.

The video closes with this message: “We wish all our friends and neighbors affected by the flood all the best in the days and weeks to come. We hope this video has brought a little bit of sunshine into your gloomy day.”
