killer petting zoo

Bethany and I took the boys to a pumpkin farm today. It was fun, but way overpriced. Anyway, one of the several attractions was a petting zoo, complete with food you could buy for the animals. Bethany thought this was a great idea, but I objected. I remembered a story from a few years ago where kids had gotten severely sick from this sort of thing.

Bethany thought I was crazy. Later in the day, she told Lonna, who also thought I was insane.

Insane? My mind is a steel trap.

This is the article I remembered. Essentially it says that five kids experienced kidney failure after visiting a petting zoo.

“Petting zoo” is a nice way of saying “disease plagued playground of death”.

Oh, and Lonna and Bethany? I told you so.
