Where Animals Go To…

The National Zoo in Washington is facing troubled times, and the director has resigned:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. National Zoo’s director resigned on Wednesday, hours after an expert panel criticized the park’s handling of animals, including the deaths of two red pandas, a zebra and an elephant.
“It’s time for me to move on at the end of this year,” zoo director Lucy Spelman said at a news conference. “I have become a lightning rod for too much attention.”

Ms. Spelman added that her departure will allow her more time to pursue her true passion: taxidermy.
