On my third grade field trip to the big zoo in our area, I was amazed at all the animals and I just wished I could get closer to them.
My favorite were the tigers, they seemed like they could be pretty decent pets, right?

Kara Wolfe works at a children’s zoo in Indiana taking care of birds and animals with hooves (like zebras and gazelles).
You can follow her around for a day and see what her job is like. She gets right up close to them to feed them and pet them:
