It's been thirty years since I've gone to a zoo. I've been to the Milwaukee Zoo in Wisconsin and the Como Zoo in Minnesota ~ so this was a treat for me. I loved it; but must confess... when I first got there I really felt bad for the animals ... all caged up like they are. Then, I got to thinking... I imagine more than 80% of these animals were probably born in a zoo and have never known anything different their whole lives ~ plus they are treated kindly, fed 3 square meals a day, are given room for exercise, kept clean and healthy, they don't have hunt for their next meal, etc... so then I let myself go ... walking around from cage to cage and really REALLY enjoying the day.
That log above the bear ... you can crawl in there to see the bear on his side of the glass. There was some little kid in it ... so I didn't do it. lol Besides that ... I think I was a little over the size limitation! ha Dear Hubby told me, "Don't even think about it Mel." I love his concern for me.
I hope you enjoyed my little photo tour of our zoo run. I wish I had more photos to share; but I was having major camera issues on our trip. So... I'm just thankful for those I do have.
Tomorrow... a garden tour.
Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
