As many SF Locals might know, KGO-TV (ABC Local) ran a piece on the Thursday News about the Zoo. Staff came forward and worked together with the Reporter to launch an investigation into Staff and subsequently, public Safety. The piece and content took me by surprise, as I had not heard about any concerns regarding Safety from the Staff. Considering the situation that I was personally involved in, in 2011, as well the endless times I have posted about Animal Safety, I found it very interesting and my mind began swirling the second the first word was uttered and hasn't stopped. I haven't had time to put those thoughts together for a post, but for those who missed the News broadcast, I wanted to be timely (for a change lately) and post the link to the Video of it, as well include the email sent out to Members that evening, by the San Francisco Zoological Society. I hoped to have my post done yesterday, that said, my goal is by tomorrow night.
Additionally, the piece rebroadcast on yesterdays 6p News, noting that Zoo Keepers had planned to stage a protest at last nights annual ZooFest fundraiser, but cancelled that as (this is not exact quote, but from memory) 'Management had shown signs of being cooperative in attending to the issue'.
