A Tale of Two Zoos.
#1
This should be in the 'fires' thread but reckon it  deserves a stand alone one.

Mogo Zoo Sth Coast NSW,  was defended successfully from the biggest conflagration in living memory by staff with hoses and wet bags.  No fire brigade could get through to them, and the choppers couldn't water bomb for the smoke.

Not a single animal lost!

Krefeld Zoo. Germany

Burnt to the ground, 30 primates burnt alive, set on fire by a candle in a floating lantern..

How's the irony?


Well done Mogo!  'medals' all round!

Full story here.

Not only the Zoo staff have their houses full of assorted wildlife at the moment,  but theirs is a little more 'exotic' than most.

Oh C'mon! this was a good story! ... not for the German zoo so much, but Mogo's survival is the best news out of that district since the gold rush!

To be fair, the Krauts didn't know there was going to be a fire - looks like three women started it.

Odd.

Sorry, love.
Yeah, Mogo's tale was nice...
But damn!

So many shit stories taking place presently.
Political; ecological; it's relentless.

I should get use to it.

In the U.S., Australia is actually in the msm.
Because of the fires.
We almost never notice or mention your political struggles.

But we love koalas.

Half a billion animals have died so far, according to a couple of talking heads.

At least most of them will be pests.
