Columbus Zoo Visits

 The Columbus Zoo made its annual visit to Pike County, Wednesday, July 9th, courtesy of the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library and the Pike County YMCA.  For the first time, the event took place in the YMCA gymnasium, which provided much needed extra space.  The visit is also made possible by a generous donation from the First National Bank.

 The bleachers were packed to capacity, as zoo keeper Keith Hornsby educated everyone about a variety of our friends from the animal kingdom, including a dingo, a flamingo, cockroaches, a cane toad, a legless lizard, a bearcat, an armadillo, and even a young leopard.
