My husband, grandson and I went to go to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo. I had not been there in over 10-plus years. The grounds and all animals were in exceptional condition. I loved the giraffe exhibit; my grandson’s favorite was the tortoises.
We were admiring the sloth bears when my grandson wanted a higher look. That’s when I sat my Nikon camera on a post (which is the last picture).We walked off, and not even three minutes later, I realized I didn't have my camera. I ran back, but it was gone.
A zoo employee announced over the radio about my lost camera. So not to put a damper on the rest of the day, we continued to admire all the beautiful animals.
These pictures mean a lot to us. And there are many more than the zoo pictures – my mother’s surprise 80th birthday party, a trip to Montana with a dear friend who is no longer with us and hundreds more.
Never miss a local story.
Keep my camera as a gift. But please return the digital card to the zoo. There is a reward for just the card!
