During National Zookeeper Week, July 15 through 21, the OKC Zoo is profiling a few of the hardworking, passionate and driven individuals who spend each day caring for its animals.
Meet Courtney Tennison, small mammals caretaker and Jasmine, miniature donkey! One of Courtney's favorite memories that never fails to make her laugh is when the wallabies were first introduced to their new indoor habitat in the petting barn stalls. The goats, sheep and donkeys made a commotion simultaneously once they saw the wallabies bouncing about! (The donkeys stomped and brayed and the goat and sheep herds backed into a corner with wide eyes). "Talk about animal enrichment! I'll never forget their reactions," she said.
