As you can see by the date of my last post, I haven't made a new post here in almost a month. I apologize to anyone who follows my blog and looks to it for updates on our wonderful Zoo Friends, as well as to keep aware of what's going on at the Zoo, that you won't get from any official Press Release.
Two and a half weeks ago I lost my precious friend Goober, who this blog is named in reference to (as well my previous blog carries his name). Since his passing I have not even been able to do his RIP post. As well in the wake of this heartbreaking loss, my mind has almost stopped reeling about all things Zoo (I will make another post on that at a later time). That said, my need to post as an outlet has been zero.
The reason for this post, like one I made the other day on my blog sanfranciscozoofails.blogspot.com
is there is relevance. That post was in reference to an article that quoted my words within the article. This article is another spin on a previous article posted on this blog.
My question is When will the patting of the backs end and the fixing of our Zoo start?
I posted a comment which is "awaiting moderation", so who knows if it will see the light of day, so I will post it here. .... This is the second time a news forum has noted that it moderates comments. To me, it is understandable on someone's personal blog or website, but on a news source site, freedom of speech should be in play.
July Press painted this guy as a "Visionist" ( http://iamnotananteater.blogspot.com/2012/07/zoo-hires-exhibit-visionist-alittle-too.html ) , now he's an Animal Psychologist. Interesting, since some on the Zoo Staff seem to make decisions regardless of empathy toward the Animals. The Zoo continually fails to be all that it can be, as it is held back on many counts by those currently in charge. There are wonderful Animals that live there, but in the minds of Management they are secondary to Visitors and future plans of grandeur. Time will tell if this guy will change the minds of the current Zoo Administration OR join the ranks of their stagnant mentality.
