Zoo Keeper Kim Doman says, "But they have looked at us a little funny when we've been up there picking up and scavenging. They're not really sure what we're up to."
Little do they know they're deposit is about to turn a profit. Zoo volunteers are decorating the elephant waste and plan to sell it. Volunteer Karen Taylor says, "After it's dried. Because when it's fresh, it has a terrible odor as you can imagine."
Sadly, I don't live anywhere near this zoo. If I did I would happily pack up the kids and take them to see the Topeka Zoo's craft fair this Sunday. I have seen lots of elephants and been to lots of zoos, but I have never seen hand-decorated elephant poo.
