Joe N ClarisaHahaha! Yeah a zoo worker totally freaked me out. I was rushing to get to my husband and our baby and daughter. I was left behind with the stroller and our other son. My husband was speaking to a different zoo worker when another one, a guy, jumps in front of me, blocks my way and says THIS AREA IS CLOSED , this WHOLE AREA IS CLOSEDDD! My husband standing a few feet behind him..I was DUMBFOUNDED..like all I'm trying to do is get to my husband and kids geez man. I didn't say anything but I felt so stupid. Then I figured someone was feeding the giraffes that they didn't want anyone coming close to, and yup, a few minutes later these two young ladies come out. I had no idea. All I wanted was to get my family and feed some giraffes. Wish they had a nicer way of approaching people. At least this particular guy.
