Giraffe have a storied history at the Abilene Zoo. Abilene received its first pair of young giraffe in 1968 thanks to an anonymous donation of $10,000. The mayor declared May 24, 1968, as “G-Day” and cut the ribbon on the “Highneck Bridge.” The community fell in love with the animals. Indeed, the bridge was cutting-edge zoo design in its day — making Abilene one of the first zoos in the nation to let guests interact with the leggy animals.
*Just returned from wonderful trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Yellowstone with lots of new photos. Posting in a day or two.
