My Seven Years in Captivity: Tails and Misadventures in the San Diego Zoo
From tales of the painting elephant that appeared on the Johnny Carson show, to encounters with a "psycho" duck, a baby gorilla and an escaped kangaroo, public relations man Bill Seaton describes his fascinating experiences during his tenure at the world famous SAN DIEGO ZOO. The antics of the animals proved minor compared to those of lost visitors and misguided Hollywood film crews, events recalled with humor and insight into the workings of the largest collection of animal species in the world.The book is endorsed by author Warren Adler, Bob Dale, host of the former ZOORAMA TV show, Jack Hanna, Curator Emeritus, Columbus Ohio Zoo, and Bob Tucker, Director, Media Relations, Disneyland Resort.
