Zoo de Doue

Pre Blog

About 20 years ago we visited Zoo de Doue with Helen, she was around 6 or 7, things were going extremely well. We kept on telling her to keep away from the cages and dont touch the animals.

Half way around the zoo we came across the Petting Zoo, full of sheep, goats etc

In we went, then I ran out leaving Helen in the middle (no one else was around) and then I shouted "Helen, why are you in the cage with the animals ?"

At that time the goats descended on Helen as I had left some pop corn in her hand ...... She looked round in horror and screamed !

Well I got my comeuppance, when going back in one of the goats ate my camera strap !!
