A MAN GIVES MEDICINE TO PANDAS. Videos of a zookeeper struggling to give medicine to two pandas have apparently been around on the internet since last fall, but I had not been aware of them until RAB called one to my attention. Here is the longest of the delightful videos, on the Daily Mail site.
Kids, I grew up with my mother telling me zoo stories, which included her having to find a veterinarian for a sick panda on April Fool’s Day. I posted on some of those zoo stories here. This wikipedia article tells about that panda, Su Lin, the first panda in the United States. Su Lin was brought to the United States by Ruth Harkness in 1936 and wound up at the Brookfield Zoo near Chicago.
