Holiday Day 12: Katie has her wish come true
We spent the morning today at Mervent Zoo. Although it is not the largest of places, they have a really good selection with nice big enclosures for the large beasts.
They also have some of the locals in cages too; there is a petting area with lots of hungry goats (and an alpaca or two). The donkey pen was opposite the goats; all the girls ignored the donkey and went straight for the 'cute' goats.
The donkey brayed in indignation so I promised it that I would put its picture on my blog. We even managed to salvage some spilled popcorn for the donkey before the goats inhaled it all.
Alex managed to see a Wolf (in the huge enclosure with the bears) and Katie got her wish; she stroked a Giraffe.
