ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - The Detroit Zoo's inhabitants are about to have a smashing good time.

The animals are going to be given pumpkins filled with treats to eat, play with, tear apart and smash.

On Wednesday, officials are to supply the zoo's vultures with treat-filled pumpkins.

Snow monkeys, gorillas, rhinos, zebras, bison, wolverines, polar bears and anteaters also are getting treats as part of the annual Halloween-themed enrichment program.

The goal is to stimulate the natural behaviors of the animals.
