it was amazing

This book has it all: animal stewardship in zoos vs animal freedom, touching animal stories, labor relations issues, political machinations, power struggles, hubris. It is the story of the growth of Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, focusing on its elephants and Siberian Tigers with nods to other animals as well and also focusing on its director Lex Salisbury and how his overreaching brought him down. Highly recommended
