A Stockport animal lover had the best birthday present ever from her husband a chance to spend a day at DZG with some of the world’s rarest animals.
Lynne Henry’s husband, Alan, treated her to Be a Zoo Keeper day for her 65th birthday, where she flew birds of prey, fed the tigers, got up close to rare Rothschild giraffes and even managed to find time to tickle the tapirs.
Lynne also joined keepers in making up a special enrichment toy for the peccaries filling up an empty cardboard box with straw and some fishy treats before watching them dig in!
Lynne said: “I would like to thank all the staff who made my day so special. The experience was something I will always remember.
“I had a fabulous time and it is hard to choose which of the experiences was the best.
“The day was the best present my husband has ever got for me.”
