PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium will make changes following the death of a toddler who fell into an exhibit.

The 2-year-old was mauled by African Painted Dogs on Nov. 4.

According to KDKA, the CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh, the observation deck from which the boy fell will be removed.

Sources said it will be replaced with a glass wall, but it was unknown when that would happen.

KDKA also reported the Allegheny County district attorney could like to provide select zoo employees with high-powered rifles to be used in case of another incident.
