  1. Wow, Congrats to these Vets!!… I know so many have been worried about the zoos & innocent animals in Ukraine!!
    A British gent was inquiring online about the large Kyiv Zoo that was near heavy fire?!.. I looked it up & it seems that the dedication of all the staff staying calm there 24/7, good supplies, sedatives in the drinking water of certain vulnerable animals, and safe underground enclosures have made all the difference!!- But, they did admit that it has been very troubling to the animals, including many endangered species, such as the elephants! The Kyiv Zoo manages 4000 animals from 200 different species. I’m so impressed with their preparations and the dedication of all the keepers, staying with the animals overnight, too!!-
