Tibetan Yak after the Blizzard of 2013

We have to thank the grounds crew for keeping up with the snow!  We received over 30″ of snow during a 2 day period and snow removal is always an issue when there is so much of it!  Many of our animals who can go in and outdoors were seen out in the blizzard!  The Yaks and the Camels especially didn’t wait for us to clear out in front of their indoor enclosures, they did it all by themselves.  The lion took a venture outside once the sun came out and rolled about in the snow.  All our animals did great during the storm, it’s the human folk that are still digging out.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I am sorry to hear about the loss of Mrs. Brewer. I am bird phobic and had a lot of trouble navigating around birds at the zoo. One day I saw Mrs. Brewer working with the birds and one of the birds did something cute and I laughed. She starting talking about how the birds were so amazing. After talking to her and seeing how at ease she was with the birds, I stopped trying to avoid the birds at the zoo and now I enjoy looking at them even though I am not completely comfortable with them yet. I remebered that encounter with Mrs. Brewer and how it helped me to be more at ease at the zoo. Her work with Bird Talk was so phenomenal and it will be sad not to see her there with her birds.
    My condolences to her family and may she rest in peace.
