not all those who wander are lost

Hearbreaking news hitting the television and radio waves in the last couple days – if any of you were asking ” what will be destroyed next? “, here it is. The Detroit City Counsel is taking aggressive steps to close and disband the Detroit Zoo. Somehow equating attempts by people at the State level to save the Zoo as “racism”, and comparing the relationship to slavery. Absolute insanity.

In the meantime, lets take what might be our last parting glance at a great zoological park.

Getting some snacks at the ant hill..

The mighty Wolverine, the State animal, even though they never lived here.

Gotta love the prarie dogs, who all started barking at me when I stopped to take their photo.

The American Bison. Mistakenly referred to as a “buffalo”. There are actually no native buffalo in North America.

Anybody who has been to the Detroit Zoo will remember the foot prints leading you to various attractions.

A couple silly black bears

This guy looks like a giant teddy bear !

Look at the tail on this animal – crazy !

I can remember these Egyptian motifs from when I was a kid.

Polar bear

Vultures.

the Rackham bear fountain.

Made by Corrado Parducci.

A Marshall Fredericks sculpture outside the reptile house.

Feeding time at the penguin house !

Over to the bird house to check out the birds

Again, only time will tell if the powers that be will get their way. I cant comprehend the loss of this park personally.
