A propos de moi
In one instance, Petersen, the general curator, decided to stop trapping raccoons that got onto zoo property and instead put Epsom salts on the ground in an attempt to repel them, according to Woods’ exit interview and an interview with harga kebun binatang bandung Mann and other zoo staff. The salts did not work as hoped, and a raccoon found its way into the penguin exhibit and decapitated an elderly African penguin named Alice.
Petersen then opted to trap the raccoons, Woods said. But Petersen put the traps on concrete, which caused the raccoons to rip the skin off their fingers and hands as they tried to dig out of the traps. The raccoons were then euthanized since they couldn’t be released into the wild.
