really liked it
Read in January, 2012

An interesting behind-the-scenes look at the Lowry Zoo in Tampa, Florida. It juxtaposes the stories of the zookeepers who care deeply for the animals for very little pay with the story of the zoo's megalomaniacal director who pretends as if he cares for the animals but actually cares more for the bottom line. The stories are sad and/or sweet; uplifting and/or stomach-churning.

It's starts a little slow, but hang in there - it gets better.
