OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Omaha zoo welcomed its millionth visitor of the year on Sunday - earlier than ever before.

The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium says Morgan Owens of Minneapolis, Minnesota, became the attraction’s millionth visitor of the year Sunday afternoon.

Excitement about the zoo’s new elephant exhibit that opened this year may have helped the facility reach the milestone earlier. Previously, the earliest the zoo reached a million visitors was on July 11th in 2012.

Owens was visiting the zoo with his fiance and their three children. The family received a special zoo tour, a gift basket and a free zoo membership.
