This past Saturday we headed to the Austin Zoo & Animal Sanctuary. Almost all the animals have been rescued. One of the lions was found in horrible condition in a junkyard in Arkansas. Several of the reptiles were found in abandoned apartments and duplexes. Other animals like the wolf hybrids were purchased as pets, but then the owners realized owning a wolf wasn’t what they thought it would be and surrendered the animals to the zoo. A set of foxes was seized by immigration when someone ordered them online from Russia.
Anyway, the zoo isn’t too far from our house and is just the right size for a 2.5 year old. We had quite a lot of fun.
We headed to Chipotle for lunch after two goats started getting a bit PG-13. After nap time, our friend Liz stopped by on her way thru Austin. We found a new restaurant to try and then had an even better discovery at a bookstore.
