Sad Day Here In Tucson

One of the workers at Reid Park Zoo has killed a Giraffe and another is seriously
ill after the worker fed them toxic food.

Poor giraffes.

That is sad, but have seen it happen with horses all the time.

Yeah but you would think zoo keepers would be careful about what they feed the animals.

What surprises me is the fact that they actually ate oleander leaves. I thought all animals had the ability to realize which plants are poisoness. Then again, all zoo animals have been brainwashed to eat what is provided to them. Very sad!

I'm sure it is somewhere. I just planted 6 of those bushes at my vacation home, adjacent to the neighbors I don't like. Should I offer them some tea?

Wow, thats insane... It was funny today because I was reminiscing about the obscene amount of oleander that was at the public parks in Tucson. Im surprised some of the animals didnt get ahold of it before now.
Still a sad day. That was a neat park.

The sad part is they are redoing the Zoo to give the animals more room and bring in a
couple more and them some anus goes and does this.
