Dying zoo worker gets goodbye kiss from giraffe

LINK

quote:

A terminally ill zoo worker got a goodbye kiss from a giraffe after he was wheeled in to see the zoo animals one last time.


The 54-year-old mentally handicapped man named Mario had worked as a cleaner at the Rotterdam Zoo in the Netherlands for approximately 25 years. After being diagnosed with terminal cancer, he wanted to say goodbye to the animals.

After Mario was brought to the zoo on a stretcher by the Dutch Ambulance Wish Foundation, one of the zoo’s giraffes reached down and nuzzled Mario for a goodbye kiss.

Touching story, but if he miraculously improves, we might have the start of a new religion.

this.

When I had a really bad case of food poisoning, I was resting on the sofa at my gf's house and one of the dogs who barks and refuses to come by me every time I'm there decided to park her bitch arse next to me and try to cuddle.

This wasn't the same zoo that was euthanizing and quartering giraffes in front of kids just last month?

About to ask that. I think they shot it, no drugs. Keeps meat safe for other animals to eat.
