Lily and Carino disappeared without a trace early this week from their flooded habitat at the Palm Beach Zoo.
After the burrowing bush dogs, native to Central and South America, turned up missing early Monday, zookeepers spent the day pumping out their habitat and excavating their burrows, to no avail.
Fences were scoured for holes or signs that the dogs may have climbed their way out. A construction company brought in machinery to dig in hard to reach places — and still not a sign.
In hopes that that the shy animals had gone into hiding, zookeepers put out their favorite food in hopes of luring them out when no one was around. That didn’t work either.
