McMillan Tours Put On Hold; One Of Zoo's Oldest Animals Dies

MCMILLAN—The sand filtration site that has hosted tours over the past few years isn't going to do so for the while, or possibly not at all due to safety concerns and someone deciding it was a good idea to give the tourguide (aka a regular citizen) the key to the locks. [WaPo]

NATIONAL ZOO—Sadness today as the news was announced that one of the zoo's oldest residents died. Gunnar the seal was 38 years old and had started out as a work animal for the Navy making him a true navy seal. Sniff. [Washingtonian/photo:NationalZoo (MehganMurphy)]
