The rumors came after authorities conducted a welfare check at the aquarium. However, aquarium officials said Monday that a report of an attempted break-in turned out to be false and “our animals are safe.”
Thanks to everyone who has asked about the wellbeing of our animals after last night. Our animals are safe. Boston Police performed a welfare check after a reported attempted break-in, however that report was false.Please be safe and thank you for all your support.
