We bought a Zoo

pub­lished 25 Decem­ber 2011 | mod­i­fied 18 Decem­ber 2016

Fin­ished the book of Ben­jamin Mee “We bought a Zoo”; Inter­est­ing mem­oirs of a jour­nal­ist and his fam­ily buy­ing the Zoo in Dart­moor. A fam­ily with absolutely no expe­ri­ence with zoo man­age­ment what­so­ever, and nev­er­the­less they seem to pull it off; putting this run-​down zoo on the map again; It never becomes clear why they decided to buy this zoo in the first place, unless the urge to do some­thing extra­or­di­nary and worth­while is the right moti­va­tion. A good read.
