In Memoriam - A Tribute to Mr. Percy

Post by minniev » Sat Jan 20, 2018 3:30 pm

One of our local zookeepers also adopted unwanted/abandoned exotic animals that needed homes. He took them to community events and schools so children of all ages could get to know them, and there was never a charge for visiting his traveling menagerie. There's hardly a child in the tri-county area who did not know Mr. Percy. Mr. Percy, a gentle soul if there ever was one, was murdered yesterday in his home. He'll be missed by lots of folks.l

So senseless when the good ones get taken in such a brutal manner. He seems like a very open and fun person. Hopefully they catch who did it.

All I can say is that I am so sorry.

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

He was a bunch of fun, everyone in the city loved him. A neighbor rushed out when it happened and caught the guy who did it and held him till the police arrived, so he had no chance to get away. The high school student who was helping him load the animals into the van at the time was also killed.

Our capital city is considered one of the most dangerous in the country, and indeed something different is needed.
