I’m not sure if this woman was inspired by binge watching Tiger King or just loves zoo’s and stuffed animals. Either way it’s a great story for today’s Tell Me Something Good.
Nancy Connor is an 86-year-old woman who lives in Pawtucket Rhode Island. She wanted to do something to cheer people up. So she used her stimulus money to create a zoo for stuffed animals outside her house, and it’s become a big hit with kids in the neighborhood.
She told the WJAR, the local TV news station, “I went through World War II which was tough but it’s nothing like what’s happening now everything is so sad. “People are walking up and down the street looking very sad and I thought well what can I do? I’m handicapped. I can’t go out there and do anything, but people love animals.”
Here’s the link to full story if you want to see video and photos of her front yard makeshift zoo. Pretty neat.
