Big Cat Updates

Bobcat cam seems to have been knocked out by ants.  Gale is going back with a ladder to get it back up and running.

Gale’s Coordinator Report for Thursday, June 15, 2017

Today was a great day, we mowed and weeded Nikki lion’s open air side and cleaned out the tunnel and worked on the bamboo root ball.

The other half of Moses and Bailey was done and a new door installed to make it easier to separate their cages.

The pile of nonsense down by the tool shed was cleaned up and organized.

Enrichment and Operant sign offs were done.

We unloaded a meat truck, the Pepsi truck and got two loads of top soil for the cages.

Keeper Afton 6/14/2017:  I just witnessed Zabu snoring, which I have never heard a big cat do before, and Cameron burping, which is usually a Zabu thing. These two are purrfect for each other!
