Free Entrance To All U.S. National Parks, Including ‘Acadia’, This Veterans Day Weekend, November 11 – 12, 2017.

It is late in the season, but it should still be quite nice in Acadia — it ALWAYS is, by definition. I just checked the weather for YOU; it will be in the low 40s, BUT no rain! Yes, that will be a bit chilly but pleasant if you are bundled up.

Just a heads up.

I know that many think it is a SPORT to visit Acadia without paying the Entrance Fee. And I understand. But, the Parks can do with the money especially since they are under attack by ‘Agent Orange‘. This way you don’t have to avoid paying the entrance fee. You can explore for FREE — morally and legally. {Smile}

Yet Another Female Zoo Keeper, The 5th To My Knowledge Since 2013, Attacked By Captive Tiger; I Suspect Hormones.

by Anura Guruge

From the UK “Daily Mail“, Nov. 6, 2017.

This attack, in Russia, of a female zookeeper by a ‘Big Cat’ is not the first — though she was lucky in that she was NOT killed.

I am familiar with, and have documented 4 instances of such attacks by tigers on female zookeeper, since 2013. They are: Dianna Hanson in California in March 2013, Renee Radziwon of Portland in November 2013, Sarah McClay in the UK in May 2013 and then Rosa King, at Hamerton Zoo Park, also in the UK, in May 2017.

That so many young female zookeepers are being attacked by Big Cats could, of course, all be but an unfortunate coincidence.

BUT, there is something else we should consider. These are all women were still of childbearing age. I think that there is an hormonal connection, something to do with ‘scent’ that tigers and lions can smell. IF you think they can’t smell changes to our scent due to hormonal changes, then you are probably not that familiar even with domestic dogs.

It is something, I think, that should be studied further. We might be able to save some lives of other female zookeepers.
