A brilliant birthday gift

Animal-crazy Corey Beardsmore from Lancashire had a brilliant time when she became a DZG Keeper for the Day.


The 21-year-old, pictured left, loved everything about the experience, especially feeding Sumatran tigress Daseep.

Corey said: “I had a brilliant time and loved the whole day. I especially liked feeding the tiger, that was really special.

“The experience was a wonderful present for my 20th birthday from my Mum. She knows how much I like animals.”

Corey also enjoyed meeting male snow leopard Margaash who adopted a purr-fect pose, below, during her memorable day.

She praised DZG staff for being well-informed and friendly and said the day was so enjoyable as it was an intimate experience rather than being part of a big group.
