brandylynkay Real talk - @sedgwickcountyzoo isn't there a better option for the whitetails than a mud pit?
For the most part the animals at SCZ are so well cared for, and their environments reflect that.
It just doesn't seem to be the case for the poor deer. There's never any grass in their enclosure and they're down the majority of the time it to avoid slugging through this muck. (I realize they're herbivores and ruminant, and also that they're nocturnal - but still. There is just no life in these guys!) *

The elephant enclosure looks amazing and it's coming along well - but man this is so sad We have been members for three years now and the deer conditions just seem to keep deteriorating. Please can't we do something to help them? The elk (the most closely related animal in the North America section) have a far better life and habitat by comparison!
Sincerely,
A Concerned Zoo Member

  •   curiouserkate Oh, that makes me so sad. 1d
  •   brandylynkay @curiouserkate I think what kills me the most is that not two feet from their fence looks like their ACTUAL environment! Trees and grass! It's not like we are trying to duplicate something foreign and failing ... It sort of just seems like we're not even trying. The few times I've seen the male up he limps and his antlers look awful, he's so lifeless :( 1d
  •   sedgwickcountyzoo Thank you for your care and concern. We have forwarded your picture and concerns to our Curator of Mammals and the Senior Zookeeper of the area. We'll share information as soon as they get back to us. We appreciate hearing from you. 1d

brandylynkay Pro Parent Tip no. 236 - if you're too poor for a trampoline (which we are) and it's been raining for two weeks (which it has) a mattress on the floor makes an excellent energy zapper 1d

brandylynkay Grampa left yesterday after a very rainy weekend of making us pancakes, wrestling with his grandboys and teaching Andrew the finer points of cooking. That's love you guys.
Forever thankful for family that drives six hours just to see us
