A gorilla dies of old age at a zoo right before the zoo opens. It is the only gorilla at the zoo since they are not very profitable.
However, the gorilla is their most popular attraction by far, and they can't afford to go a day without it. So the zoo owner asks one of his workers to wear a gorilla suit they have in storage for an extra $100 a day if he will go in the gorilla cage and pretend to be the gorilla until the zoo can afford a new one.
Quickly, the new "gorilla" becomes the most popular craze at the zoo. People from all over are coming to see the "Human-like" gorilla.
About a month in, the craze has started to wear off. So, to get peoples' attention back, he decides to climb over his enclosure and hang from the net ceiling above the lions' den next to him. A large crowd of people gather watching the spectacle in awe and terror. Suddenly the man loses his grip and falls to the floor of the lion's den. The man starts screaming "HELP!! HELP!!!" Suddenly a lion pounces him from behind and whispers in his ear, "Shut the fuck up right now or you're going to get us both fired."
TIL that 2 donkeys that have been together for 10 years at a zoo in Poland were separated after a local politician and parents complained about them mating in front of children. Experts weighted in and a petition to rejoin them got 7,000 signatures so the zoo put them back together. thestar.com/news/world/20…
AITA for having a woman thrown out of the zoo?
Ok yesterday was my son's birthday. He had wanted to go to the zoo which we pre-booked last week. I am disabled and when I asked about a scooter for that day I was disappointed. All the scooters were booked out. Mine wouldn't fit into the back of my local taxis and I couldn't use my wheelchair as I don't have great control over it and the zoo is quite hilly.
When we got there we were having a great time we had stopped for lunch and I had to take my meds I saw this woman staring at me from across the rest area but paid her no mind. Me and the kids got moving and were near an enclosure for crocs and a loo. Thanking my lucky stars I entered the disabled loo, lent my crutches against the wall and then heard the door bang. The banging went on throughout me doing what I had to do when I left the building it was the woman from the rest area. She was screaming about me being a druggie and using disabled loos when I didn't need too, employees came over security was called and I allowed them to

Planet Zoo: Australia Pack coming 25 August, 2020!
With Planet Zoo, we've travelled far and wide across the globe, but we've yet to travel Down Under. We're on our way to explore the natural splendour and intrigue of the Australian Outback, to take in the beautiful wildlife and, of course, meet brand new animals.
We're thrilled to announce the Planet Zoo: Australia Pack, arriving alongside free Update 1.3 on 25 August, 2020!
Meet our five marvellous, iconic animals that will be making an appearance: the curious Koala, handsome Red Kangaroo, cunning Dingo, striking Southern Cassowary and inquisitive Eastern Blue-Tongued Lizard. These five animals will present their own challenges, which will require learning how best to care for them, to ensure their health and wellbeing.
These new additions also arrive alongside over 230 new scenery and building pieces, that include eye-catching construction pieces that are designed to feature upcycled materials tha

AITA for not supporting my wife quit her 450k a year vascular surgery job to start all over to become a zoo veterinarian?
Podo* (36F) and I (37M) have been together for 14 years. We met when she was an idealistic first year medical student, and I still had all my hair. Since then, she's gone through 4 years of medical school, 5 years of a surgical residency plus 2 years of research during that time, and 2 years of a vascular surgery fellowship. During the residency/fellowship years, she worked 80-110 hours a week. She finally started her first "real" job last year and has been liking it so far. Now she also makes 450k a year working fewer hours and doing something she quite enjoys.
Recently, Podo started talking about how her childhood dream was to be a zoo veterinarian and she basically gave up on that dream because of how difficult it was to achieve. Not only is vet school just as difficult to get into as med school, but it is insanely competitive to obtain one of the coveted zoo veterinarian positions. After 4 years of vet school, they need to do 4 years of residency and potentially take additional

I'm a security manager for a zoo had a very humbling situation happen to me the other day.
So a little background on me.
I am the department head for security and safety at a zoo in the south and mostly the job is very relaxed compared to other places I've been in the past.
Usually the calls are about people not wanting to listen, or trying to feed the animals, or the occasional domestic issue.
Of course it is the south though and people can be.... very prejudiced to say the least.
I get calls all the time about a black, hispanic, indian, or arabic man "taking pictures of children" when that's never the case. They're just being racist.
Well I got a call on my radio about a guest being suspicious; walking around the zoo by himself with a bag.
I found the man and of course... he was middle eastern.
I was frustrated but followed him from a distance just because I have to take all calls seriously, even if they're not.
I did notice the man... do something strange though.
He would reach in the bag and rumage around, then take it out and drop something in the grass next to the

I know it's no surprise and this business is just one of thousands right now, but I hold animals very near and dear to my heart and I just want to do whatever I can to help!
I'm going to make an effort to visit more often and donate as well, but I know my small contribution will not be enough. Does anyone have any ideas on how I/we can help?
