Chimps’ early festive feast

Sprouts were on the menu for our seven chimp girls, who enjoyed a festive feast, thanks to a

donation from The Fellows pub.

Bosses at Dudley’s The Broadway-based bar donated eight large tubs of leftover steamed seasonal carrots, sprouts, potatoes and peas to primate keepers who dished them out to our grateful apes.

Lower Primates Senior Keeper, Jodie Dryden, pictured, said: “We were offered the freshly steamed vegetables from the pub staff, who had surplus leftovers following the recent wintry weather.

“We’re thankful to The Fellows for thinking of us and the girls all enjoyed tucking into an early Christmas dinner!”
