Birthday boy turns keeper

A Cradley man had an eventful birthday, courtesy of his girlfriend, as he spent the day mucking out some of DZG’s rarest animals.


Mark Curzon was surprised with a Keeper for a Day experience by his partner, Sophie Bird, which they both enjoyed on Mark’s special day, as they also hand fed lemurs, giraffes, birds and tapirs.

Sophie said: “We both love anything to do with animals, so this experience was great and well worth the money.

“We had a fantastic time so it’s hard for me to say which bit of the day was my favourite as I loved it all, but Mark’s was definitely the lemurs. They are such lovely animals and being able to get close to them and being able to feed them was simply amazing.”
