I'm very sad to report on some of our favorite Moonridge animals...
I'd planned to send out information today on the upcoming Big Bear Alpine Zoo Online Charity Benefit (formerly Moonridge Online Auction), but felt all the dedicated fans should know of the passing of several animals we've adopted in past auctions. :(

We've lost:
aslanduchessIcelorelei for susanRingo for susan Link
And two animals I don't seem to have photos for: Nostradamus and Duncan

I loved all of these animals as did you all, and this brings home how difficult it is for the many workers and volunteers at the zoo who care for the animals, raise them and love them - and then lose some of them.

This years charity event to benefit the zoo will be dedicated to not only Garett, who brought us this zoo, but to the animals we've lost - and to many volunteers and workers who try so hard to create a home for the animals, who spend hours healing them and in many cases, readying them for live back in the wild.

More information on this years event will be posted on Wednesday, the 26th.

I know - I can't believe we've lost him

and the others. I LOVED Ringo and Lorelei! Heck, I loved all of them.

Oh, that must have been a hard year for everyone. I wonder if it had anything to do with harsh, cold winters up in Big Bear.

Mostly the birds suffered

and of course, Ice is used to the cold, being an arctic fox. :( Man,this made me sad.
