Zoo Workers

OPB | Aug. 30, 2007 1:30 p.m.

Injecting a giraffe for arthritis pain, weighing a Siberian tiger, taking x-rays of a blue-tongued skink lizard, testing the kidney function of a debrazis monkey, and applying medicine to the eye of a 1000 pound polar bear… Just an average work day for the veterinarian team at the Oregon Zoo. Watch these brave, dedicated animal lovers work as they face the challenges of one particularly busy day at the zoo.
