Got milk? Make sure you keep it away Bakari, the Little Rock Zoo’s newest male lion and milk lover.
Zoo officials on Wednesday introduced the 2-year old big cat, who came to the Little Rock Zoo a year ago from the Pueblo Zoo in Pueblo, Colo.
Zookeepers said they had problems getting Bakari to leave his indoor enclosure until one day, staff members placed a large dish of milk outside. Bakari emerged, emptied the bowl, then tore the milk cartons apart.
Partially in honor of the lactose-loving lion, Coleman Dairy announced their sponsorship of the Zoo, donating more than $50,000 in cash and in-kind product.
Coleman Diary is also sponsoring Dollar Day at the zoo this Saturday, when admission is, you guessed it, $1. Parking will be free.
