Ninja's Big Day!

Before being released into his new enclosure,Ninja needed to be neutered, so The NYS zoo brought him to us, where Dr.Plante, Dr. Risser, and our technical staff sedated, neutered andrecovered the 62 lb "kitten". As an added bonus, the JCC AnimalManagement class was able to watch the procedure! Ninja is now onexhibit at The NYS Zoo at Thompson Park.
