okay, okay...

i'm boring so i hate blogging now.

Saturday, Peng and I went to PAWS and basically did nothing. We stood by the 2nd gate, just in case we had an overflow, then we'd spring in to action but there never was an over flow. so we hung out with a guy named Gordon and listened to his interesting stories with the back ground noise of the tigers setting each other straight.

finally, near the end of the day, Peng and i got to go down to where the elephants were. It was so cool to see them up close after seeing them on the internet for years. They got two new elephants Lulu and Tinkerbelle from the SF Zoo; but, Tinkerbelle died shortly after she arrived. her feet literally seperated from her leg. Very common in zoo elephants because they usually stand day in and day out in a little tiny area they are forced to call home.

in the wild, elephants will walk 200+ miles every day. their needs are not quite met after we kidnap them from their families in africa.

we suck.

On a higher note, umm...well there isn't any. i'm still waiting for the job i interviewed for a few weeks ago to call me and let me know if they are going to hire me. they offered me the job but not as a promotion and i told them 'no' so he's going to talk to his boss again and see if they can actually promote me and bring me over so cross your fingers~

It is so sad, the cruel things people inflict upon poor animals. I hate that waiting game after an interview. Good luck, keeping my fingers crossed for you.

yeah the whole animal thing should be more like safrri's if we must see the wnimal we should be in the cage and go to where they are at. I would think that would teach more as well since zoo's do a not so good job of keeping the wild life in realistic enviornments.

the cool thing about the sanctuaries is you CAN see the elephants as close as possible as wild as they possibly can be after they've been captured. PAWS has open houses but the elephant sanctuary in tennessee will never let you visit the 'phants. you can alwys view them via their elecam though which is VERY cool...
