At one point, park rangers closed the vehicle entrances and were diverting cars because of capacity concerns.
The Los Angeles Zoo was allowing guests who already had tickets to enter Zoo Drive but others were being turned away for much of the afternoon.
By around 4:45 p.m. a ranger at the park said vehicle traffic was being allowed back in again.
